Your Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition is the pinnacle of your award. It's about planning an adventure, getting outdoors and exploring the best of the UK!

Explorers will work in small teams to plan an expedition. That includes food, their programme and their route. Adult leaders will work with explorers to make sure everything is in good shape!

Young people will be expected to take on the lead for their own expedition - preparing food, carrying team kit and problem solving. We'll walk for 6-8 hours on Saturday, camp at Dilston, and then walk another 6 hours on the Sunday of the expedition.

Adults will regularly check-in with young people en route and will stay at Dilston, but it's their expedition!

It's set to be a great weekend and an opportunity not to be missed!

Please note, to achieve your Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze Award, you must complete this weekend.
