If you are starting the award at the silver level, and so have not completed a bronze expedition, you will need to attend the expedition training sessions shown above for bronze award participants until the training walk. This is to ensure we have covered the training framework defined by the Duke of Edinburgh Award

Previously, we have offered a canoe expedition and the dates to complete the Silver Expedition via canoe the dates are below, if you like to do a walking expedition then please get in contact with us and we will arrange a group for the coming year.
