Watch Out Mary Berry – Students enter Summit Bake Off !

A record breaking 75 students from PES Summit 11 headed off to Fritton Lake in Norfolk over the recent Field Weekend to conduct preparation training for the Sweden 2017 expedition.

The weekend involved paddling skills, bushcraft training, fire lighting, wood carving and cooking.

Highlights included the Great Summit 11 Bake Off which featured backwoods baked creations ranging from platted breads and steamed puddings to berry foraged cookies.

On the water students faced the dreaded rescue practice which involved full submersion in the autumnal waters of the lake.

Overall the weekend was a great success and students made good progress in developing their outdoor skills for Sweden.
