2023 Expedition Dates:
Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th June, 2023 – Surrey Hills
Wednesday 30th August to Saturday 2nd September, 2023 – Surrey Hills
Our Bronze programme is designed to suit participants in need of a full expedition section but can also be broken down. Participants can join days 1 and 2 if they only need a training expedition or days 3 and 4 if they only need a qualifying expedition.
Prior to the expedition, participants will receive resources to help with preparation and be put in touch with teammates if they would like to discuss meal plans, kit or travel.
Day 1 – Arrival approx 11 am followed by introductions. Teams work through the DofE training framework with sessions on tents, kit and food, map work, first aid and trangia stoves.
Day 2 – Navigation training day. Teams work with their instructor to learn self sufficient navigation. By the end of the day teams will be walking under remote supervision. Participants taking part in a training expedition only will leave on return to campsite (approx 4pm).
Day 3 – Qualifying participants arrive 9am. Qualifying expedition takes place under remote supervision with teams check pointed along their route.
Day 4 – Teams continue along their route, check pointed until they arrive at their finish point. Teams will receive a debrief with their instructor and hand in their team kit before departing.
Expeditions are run by qualified instructors with experience of the expedition areas. All expeditions include tents, stoves, fuel, maps and compasses, route planning resources, campsite and assessors fees as well as expedition administration and comprehensive pre-expedition information. Participants must arrange their personal kit, transportation and food.
