We are providing the opportunity for Silver young people to complete a 5 day expedition which will count as your Practice and Qualifying expedition. YOU will need to attend expedition training beforehand at our main unit in Basildon, Essex. 18th or 19th August- Date will be issued when we know numbers.
This is important as you learn the skills needed to be able to go on expedition. You will also meet all the other individual young people going on that expedition.
We have secured a campsite for Sole use of our Silver expedition which includes our own toilet and shower block. We have indoor storage for the young people to be able to pack a bag for the practice expedition and then have spare bag with equipment and food for the 3 day Qualifying expedition. The young people will swap kit after the debrief of the practice expedition
In training we will discuss other changes needed for social distancing such as own tents, own map each, cooking and having small expedition teams of 4 or 5.
If you can not make this opportunity we have paid for the same campsite in October half term. We can also take groups for a Three day expedition for a Practice or Qualifying expedition.
Each expedition team can select their project and plan a route around their Aim. If an expedition group would like to do a more project based expedition and less journeying time that is all planned on the Training day in their team.
