Participants will arrive on the morning of the 21st and the final expedition checks will be completed. This will include a kit check and any relevant training. Young people will be allocated expedition groups and a brief route planning exercise completed for the following 2 day 1 night expedition. Groups will then begin their practice expedition travelling through the Dark Peaks. This expedition will be supported by our DofE instructors who will work through the DofE training framework throughout the weekend to ensure you can prepare for the qualifying expedition in the future. Sections of this expedition will be unsupported and supervised via checkpoints and remote supervision.
Note: All participants need to provide their own personal kit and food for the entire expedition. Group kit such as tents, stoves, fuel, maps and compasses are provided. Participants also need to arrange their own transport to and from the expedition area. A full itinerary will be provided upon request.
