Silver canoe back to back August 2021

1-6 August 2021 -Burton on Trent £400
A rare opportunity to complete your silver expedition by canoe, using back to back training and expeditions. Places available in our open expedition Silver team.

Using the River Trent and adjoining sections of river and canal, our silver teams will complete a day’s skill training before undertaking their 2 day, 2 night practice expedition and 3 day, 2 night qualifying expedition. Participants will be expected to complete e-learning elements and participate in online route planning prior to the course. (6 hours engagement, at learner’s own pace) As such, bookings must be received by 1 July.

Those eligible to use Gold practice as Silver Qualifier (as part of the DofE with a Difference) are able to transfer to Gold practice instead of silver Qualifier, with the opportunity to then continue to Gold Qualifier on the Severn, 1-5 September, for an additional £350 (or to book dates for Gold qualifier in 2022 with us once released at this price). Participants wishing to do a combined Gold/Silver expedition must meet the age requirements of the higher level (they must be at least 16 years old) and they must be enrolled at Gold.

This expedition opportunity can be accessible to those with medical conditions requiring variations to the 20 conditions, closer supervision and enhanced medical backup and/or mobility issues or conditions requiring extra breaks or treatment during the day; please contact [email protected] for more information.
