DofE Expedition downloads

The aim of the Expedition section: to inspire young people to develop initiative and a spirit of adventure and discovery, by planning, training for and completing an adventurous self-sufficient journey, as part of a team. We’ve compiled a range of expedition resources to support throughout.

 

From cycling in the Galloway Hills, walking in the Brecon Beacons or canoeing down the Thames, to sailing in the Mediterranean, horse riding in Chile or walking in the Atlas Mountains, participants choose where and how they want to undertake their expedition.

The Expedition section of the DofE involves planning, training for a completing an unaccompanied, self-sufficient expedition with an agreed aim.

All participants must:

  • have appropriate training
  • do at least one practice expedition in the UK
  • complete a qualifying expedition (the one that is assessed)
  • deliver a presentation in order to complete the section

We have fantastic expedition resources available to support you and your group during the preparation and undertaking of the expedition section. Download, share or print all of our expedition resources below.
