Silver DofE Open Expeditions
If your school or group doesn’t offer DofE, or you can’t make their expedition dates or you just want to get it done this Autumn, we have the answer for you.
Why not join others like yourself on one of our Open Expeditions? This Autumn we are running silver training and practice expeditions as well as qualifying expeditions. If you have friends, or existing team members, and you would like to stay together we can make sure that happens. If you are on your own then this is a great opportunity to make new friends.
All of our instructors are fully qualified and will work with you on all aspects of the silver DofE expedition syllabus, whether that’s training and practice or qualifying.
If you’re applying for the assessed expedition then you must have completed the training and practice first.
