Open DofE Expeditions For Individuals
The expedition section of the DofE consists of 4 parts. Training, Practice expedition, Qualifying expedition and then a Presentation. All parts need signing off at all levels (with the exception of Bronze which does not require a practice expedition).
Most people who attend our expeditions fall into one of two camps.
1) They do a full programme with us as they can't do it at their school or they have left school
2) They do just the assessed expedition as they couldn't make the dates the expedition that their school were able to offer or they were ill or injured at the time.
However, as our programme is entirely modular some people just do the training and practice then go on to do their assessed with someone else or maybe they just do the practice expedition before re-joining their school group for the assessed
Open expedition groups that we have not trained will not do a wild camp unless specifically requested.
As well as the dates listed below we can run bespoke training for individuals and groups of 5-7 participants at a time to suit you. Please visit this page or get in touch if you would like further information on this or to set a date.
