This is for those who are not available on the dates set for the expeditions with their own organisations. Don’t worry. Join us on a friendly, enjoyable and challenging adventure. Spend the first few days with like-minded young people, in the beautiful Hope and Edale Valleys and beyond. We have highly qualified and supportive Instructors helping you to review and improve navigation, teamwork, emergency procedures and campcraft skills on the Practise expedition. Once fully prepared, you’ll be heading off through Edale. across the Dark Peak, down Snake Pass and across Howden Moor and Stanage Edge to return to the Hope Valley again for the 4 day Qualifying expedition. At this point our Instructors will be in ‘remote supervision’ mode – on hand but not interfering, ready to support and ensure your safety at all times.
