YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE TO COMPLETE YOUR DOFE EXPEDITION SECTION. WE DELIVER HIGH QUALITY AND ENJOYABLE OPEN PRACTICE AND QUALIFYING EXPEDITIONS IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES AND LAKE DISTRICT.
There are many reasons why young people need to join a DofE open expedition group and there are lots of positives in joining one too, you will meet new people and hopefully begin to make lifelong friendships.
We are here for you and our aim is to make your open expedition as enjoyable as possible. It can be a scary and daunting prospect but you will be joining likeminded individuals to complete your practice or qualifying expedition. You can choose to do a practice or qualifying expedition, most participants though choose to join us for both their practice and qualifying expedition.
Your group will be given a highly qualified instructor that will work with you for the duration of the practice and be dedicated to your training. You will be supported every step of the way ensuring that all the skills you need are taught and that you are given every opportunity to develop in confidence.
