Hampshire County Council – Gold Wild Country Training and Practice Expedition – Brecon Beacons – April 2023

Our wild country practice and assessed expeditions give you the opportunity to take part in a classic DofE expedition, completed in the wild and rugged peaks and moors of the Brecon Beacons and the Peak District National Parks. You can book just one or both of the expeditions depending on your need, a handy way to complete one of your sections if you’ve had to miss out on one or other with your school, college or open centre due to injury, illness or other important event.
