Open expeditions

Open expeditions are a great way to meet new people and experience The Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award in a different dynamic.

Open expeditions usually consist of participants from different locations across the country who have been unable to make their school’s expeditions. You will join a team of individuals who you may not know. You will complete your planning, training and expedition with that group.

You may be joining an open expedition with one or two of your friends. We will do our best to ensure that you stay in a group with those people, but this is not always possible.

Our qualified instructors will work with you on all aspects of the DofE training syllabus. Your assessor will conduct a full debrief with you at the end of the expedition. You’ll also present your expedition aim at the end of the trip.

Our open expeditions can be used as a practice or qualifying expedition. We also offer full programmes of expeditions.
