Additional Needs Open Expedition Course

Gloucestershire YST (powered by Prospects Services) organises an annual event for participants with additional needs to complete their Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Expedition section.
Dates for this event are from 10am on Sat 8 August to 2pm on 15 August 2020.
The week will consist of team building, expedition skills training and a practice expedition, before participants undertake their final assessed expedition. Participants will have a debrief and an opportunity to prepare a presentation, which will be made to parents and guests at the end of the week.
Unfortunately, we are unable to take bookings from participants using electric wheelchairs. If you use a manual chair, you must be able to transfer from chair to a lower camp bed or an airbed / sleeping mat as all your accommodation will be camping.
Although the course is catered, and we can cater for different dietary needs, we are happy for you to bring your own expedition foods, should you prefer to do so.
If you are on any prescribed medication, you need to be able to self-administer.
