Kent DofE – Gold DofE Expedition – Brecon Beacons

Kent DofE are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for Gold participants to join our Gold DofE Expeditions.

We combine your Expedition Training & Practice Expedition into a 5-day programme consisting of 2 days training and a 3-day, 2-night Expedition. You will be camping at our base camp during the training and at different remote sites during the Practice Expedition.

Your assessed Expedition will also be a 5-day programme. Day 1 will be an acclimatisation and route planning day before you head off on expedition for 4 days, 3 nights where you will camp at different remote sites each night.

Our Wild Country expeditions cost £195 per expedition (£390 for both Practice & Assessed). Expedition Kit hire is included in the cost for participants who require it.

The cost above does not include transport to or from the Expedition Areas or Food for the duration of your expedition.
Participants are responsible for arranging this themselves. We can arrange collection from nearby railway stations if required.

For participants living in Kent, we can offer the opportunity for you to travel to and from the expedition area with us on the day before / day after the expedition for an additional cost of £75 per expedition. This includes the cost of two extra night’s camp fees.
