Duchess of Cambridge will be joining disadvantaged children on an outdoor survival course
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will visit Kent today to meet disadvantaged children on an outdoor survival skills course.
She will visit an Expanding Horizons Primary School Scheme at Widehorizons’ Margaret McMillan House in Wrotham.
The course enables children from inner-city backgrounds to develop and learn new skills.
The Duchess will meet children, aged between eight and nine, from ARK’s King Solomon Academy Primary in London, who are taking part in an outdoor residential course.
She will join the pupils in outdoor activities such as building a shelter, campfire building and cooking.
The Expanding Horizons Scheme allows schools in deprived areas to lead their own trips safely and at low cost.
The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry supports ARK, a charity running 11 inner-cuty academies, in the development of their Expanding Horizons programme.
The residential course is run by Widehorizons Outdoor Education Trust, a charity that delivers inspirational outdoor learning experiences.
