The Adventure Element provide friendly and professionally delivered Gold expeditions for all young people. Our Open Expedition Programmes are ideal for those who are not able to attend their own groups or schools expedition dates.
Choose to complete either your Gold Practice or Gold Qualifying Expedition on any of the following dates.
OCTOBER HALF TERM 2021

All programmes run from Tuesday to Saturday.
NOTE: If booking both practice and qualifying expeditions, please choose 2 different areas and dates which are at least 2-3 weeks apart.
Time will be spent getting to know your group and being fully trained or being refreshed in all the essential expedition skills. This training/refresher follows the DofE training framework and delivered by our instructors. Therefore, no previous Gold expedition experience is required.
