4th Dimension Ltd – Open Silver Walking Practice – Ashdown Forest, West Sussex – July 2024

Our walking expedition packages take on the same format, whatever the level of award. Each training day/practice expedition will start with the following key elements that form the basis of a safe and successful qualifying expedition experience.

Our highly experienced instructors will cover the following key subject areas:

– The Expedition Rucksack, Equipment and Footwear
– Campcraft and Use of Stoves
– Emergency Procedures and Incident Management
– First Aid Procedures
– Road Crossings and Walking on Roads
– Navigation and Route Planning
– Environmental Awareness and The Countryside Code

The practice expedition will start with direct supervision. This will allow us to assist with any areas that may need additional support. Once we are satisfied with the team’s ability to remain self-sufficient, our instructors will step back and meet the team at various points along the practice route and provide comprehensive feedback at the end with some pre-qualifying expedition hints and tips!

Our price is all inclusive and includes campsite fees, participant fees, Assessor reports and equipment such as tents, stoves, gas, maps, compasses and group first aid kits.
