Ten Tors 2019
Pupils from Stover School are once again taking part in the Ten Tors and Jubilee Challenge Expedition, on Dartmoor. The idea of the main challenge is for teams of youngsters to walk across Dartmoor on a set route which
The teams must be self-sufficient, carrying all that they need to complete their route safely despite the terrain and the weather. The latter can be very changeable and at times quite extreme. Success or failure can depend very much on the extent to which a team has been trained for all eventualities.
The teams meet at the Okehampton Army Camp on Friday where they prepare kit and camp overnight. On Saturday morning the teams set off at around 7.00am. The bronze participants must camp on a Tor whereas the silver and gold teams can camp anywhere on the moor. The next day the teams must visit the furthest Tor on their route and return to the Okehampton camp by 17.00 thus completing the expedition.
