Complete your qualifying Gold Expedition, where our expert staff will lead you on an outdoor adventure in an exciting new place.

Using the skills you developed in your practice, we will undertake an off-site expedition exploring local landscapes and wildlife on the way. You will need to bring your own food, using what you learned in practice to decide on a suitable menu.

Our D of E Expeditions are a great way to make new friends, grow your knowledge and skills and help you to complete the Gold D of E.

This qualifying expedition can be booked together with the practice expedition at the same centre, the ideal way to complete the expedition element by developing your skills and knowledge of the location.

Camping will be in suitably shared tents*.

Our centres are operated in a fully Covid-secure way.  Always check with your D of E Leader before booking.

Bookings must be made by over 18’s but if booking for a young person please ensure you enter their name and age in the Order Notes at the checkout.

*dependent on any Covid 19 restrictions in place. You may be in a tent on your own.
