Travel and trip preparation were a fundamental part of the expedition and independent route planning inward and outward was heavily encouraged and supported by all members from the Talent Match Team and Catten College. A VIP service provided by Clive by means of a mini-bus was used to transport YP and staff members to and back from the forest campsite. The campsite, ‘home’ for the next 3 days was a 2.8-hectare field set in the heart of Rendlesham Forest. The forest is a tranquil spot for enjoying wildlife, nature and stargazing. During our stay we witnessed wildlife equivalent to a David Attenborough styled documentary with deer, squirrels, rabbits, badgers and barn owls in their droves (amongst many other creepy crawlies!) YP were allocated into teams and given their first tasks: to choose a tent and pitch it. This sounds a lot easier than done and there were plenty of dramatic moments that had many of us on our tethers. To make life that little bit easier, there were of course, no instructions. Only a few hours into the trip and YP were putting various skills to the test: communication, leadership, plenty of decision making and problem solving.
