This is a once in a lifetime and very exciting
opportunity for Scout Network members and young scout leaders. You
could follow in the footsteps of our very own local Scout
ambassador and polar explorer, Ed Coats.
Wez Swain with support from Cornish Scouting is
leading the first ever Scout expedition to the North
Pole. Wez, along with 3 Scout Network members from the South
West, guided by 2 professional polar guides, ski the last 2 degrees
of latitude (approx 120miles) to the Geographic North Pole in one
of the harshest environments on the planet.
