Open Bronze DofE Expeditions

Join us to complete your Pre-Expedition Training & Qualifying Expedition in one go.

 

How it works

In late 2018, the DofE have changed the requirements for the Bronze Expedition Section. It is now longer a requirement to complete both a practice and a qualifying expedition. Instead, we now offer a 4-day programme which allows you to complete your whole Bronze Expedition Section in one go.

Days 1 & 2: Pre-expedition training and navigation walk: We will cover all aspects of the Bronze pre-expedition training syllabus, including a navigation walk, campcraft, route planning and emergency procedures.

Days 3 & 4: You and your team will complete your 2 day qualifying expedition (assessed by a DofE Accredited Assessor). At the end of this you will give a presentation to your Assessor meaning all aspects of the Expedition Section are signed off.

For all dates, locations, full information and to book online click below - we offer a discount if you book both expeditions at the same time.
