Are you looking for Open DofE Bronze Expedition with all the route planning and paperwork included? Come and join one of our exciting DofE Open Bronze Walking Expeditions for individuals or small groups.

Applied Expeditions will take the stress out of your Expedition Section.

Practice Expeditions

Our practice expedition starts by teaching you the skills required to embark on an expedition at this level. These may include new skills or just a refresher, either way we will make sure you are up to speed. We will also get your to plan your route and create your route card.

Once we are happy that you have the required skills you are able to embark on a 2 day practice expedition. At the end of the practice expedition you will take part in a debrief, helping you to look forward and prepare for your qualifying expedition.

Qualifying Expeditions

Our qualifying expedition starts with a day of preparation. This includes choosing your aim, planning your route, checking your kit and some group bonding. We will also take you out for a walk to help you acclimatise to the area and confirm your navigation skills. Once this is all complete you are then ready to embark on your 2 day qualifying expedition.

On completion of your expedition, you will take part in a debrief. This is a very important part of the expedition, giving you time to reflect on your achievements and those of your team mates. It’s at this point we can complete your assessor’s report for you.

To help you reflect for longer on your achievement there is also a requirement for a presentation of your expedition. Once this is completed your expedition section is complete.

Participation in shared experiences in the outdoor environment develops initiative, teamwork, communication, leadership, problem solving and organisation skills. Experiencing and overcoming challenges together develops emotional strength and empathy for others. These experiences are heightened by joining a group of strangers with a similar goal of completing their Expedition Section.
