In November 2018, the DofE have changed the requirements for the Expedition Section of the Bronze Award. The changes mean that now you no longer have to complete a practice expedition. Instead you can go straight into a qualifying expedition provided you have completed all your pre-expedition training to a sufficient standard.
As a result of this, we have changed the way we are running our Open Bronze programmes: during our 4-day programme you will now complete all your pre-expedition training as well as your qualifying expedition in one go.
The Chiltern Hills are located roughly one hour's drive from Central London, near High Wycombe. Your exact starting location will be confirmed after booking.
Rolling hills, green meadows with hedgerows, woodland and picturesque villages.
Mostly well defined paths with some uneven and sometimes muddy ground.
On your first night you’ll be staying at a campsite with good facilities. Whilst on expedition, campsites may only have basic facilities.
