Both expeditions are available as practice or assessed events. Full training will be required for those teams using Expedition 2 as their practice.
Please complete the application form below. On completion you will be taken to our secure payment page.
All dates of your chosen expeditions are fixed in to packages and must be attended. If you cannot attend a specific date, then please choose one of the other expedition packages.
6 weeks prior to expedition start date - 100% refund less an administration fee of £20.00
3 weeks prior to expedition start date - 50% refund less an administration fee of £20.00
Less than 3 weeks prior to expedition start date - 0% refund
No refund will be given if you cancel your place on an expedition, if within 3 weeks of the expedition start date. This is down to the cost effects it would have on other group members if the group is not full.

Prices are based on a minimum of ten. We reserve the right to cancel if there are insufficient numbers.
Spaces on training and expeditions will be limited so you should be aware that Action4Youth operates on a first to pay, first to be accepted basis and we don’t guarantee to be able to allocate an expedition to a participant where payment has not been received with the application.
Training is dependent on willingness and participation. Action4Youth does not guarantee to be able to train every participant in the time stated. There may be a charge for any extra training needed.
In the event of you having to cancel your involvement, we will refund 50% of the cost of the event provided 6 weeks notice is given.
Route Planning and Kit Checks will be held in Aylesbury (venues to be confirmed) and start at 18.00 (evenings) or 09.00 (daytime).
