    Expedition Information

Achieving your Award is an adventure from beginning to end and this section can give you some of your most memorable experiences!

You can chose where or how you want to travel, but in most cases, to keep costs low we encourage all of our Bronze groups to complete their Expedition on foot in the local area.

There’ll need to be between four and seven of you in an expedition team (eight if you’ve chosen to travel by tandem canoe or bike). With your team, you’ll plan an aim for your expedition, decide on your location and do lots of fun training to make sure you’re fully prepared and know what you’re doing! Staff will work with your team to organise all of this and help you plan your expedition. Once you’ve done the preparation the fun starts when you go out and do a practice and a qualifying expedition. Once you’ve completed your final expedition you’ll give a presentation about your experiences and your achievements to some of the staff at school, parents or other adults.

The whole experience will give you laughs, arguments, joy and frustration along the way. But, by the end, you’ll have better team and leadership skills, not to mention bags more confidence and a rucksack full of great memories!
