The Mill Adventure Base AAP is planning an Open Silver expedition practice & expedition programme based in Nottinghamshire, and the Peak District.
Participants can access the practice/training expedition if they haven’t done one. Or just access the qualifying expedition. This programme is suitable for students already enrolled as a Silver DofE participant and who have already completed their Bronze award.
The Mill Adventure base AAP has been delivering DofE expeditions for Nottinghamshire schools and students since 2013. As an approved DofE Expedition provider and part of Nottinghamshire County Councils Notts Outdoors Team, all our staff are highly experienced, qualified, DBS checked & first aid trained. Safe working practices following national guidance, risk assessments, operational procedures and government advice will be followed.
The expedition programme:
The two-day Practice expeditions incorporate a training element and includes Practical training in navigation, first aid, rucksack packing, route-planning, tents, stoves, and cooking.
The three-day qualifying expedition is a remote supervised expedition enabling the participants to meet all the twenty conditions.
Included Camp fees, stoves, stove gas, tents, expedition rucksack, any necessary minibus transport, qualified supervisors and assessors using both direct and remote supervision, maps & compasses and assessor report.
