It was established some 4 years ago by Terri Walker when, due to funding problems the local academy decided not to send a team to the Ten Tors Race on Dartmoor.

The group meet at Townstal Community Hall and are instructed in survival techniques including map reading, these are practiced regularly by visits to Dartmoor. Chris Tucker, the Worshipful Master of Dart Lodge said

"this is the type of group that we like to support, it creates in young people a determination and a purpose in life”

Terri said

”We are so pleased that the Freemasons of Dartmouth are able support us in our venture”.
