THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S AWARD

SILVER EXPEDITION

Registration for the planning, training for and doing a 3 day (2 night) qualifying Silver expedition.

What counts for your Silver Expedition?

For your Silver Expedition section, you are required to plan, train for and complete an unaccompanied, self-reliant expedition with an agreed aim. Prior to your qualifying 3-day expedition you must do the correct Silver level training relevant to your mode of travel.

Your expedition must be completed by your own physical efforts whether you choose on foot, by bicycle, by boat, by canoe or kayak or by wheelchair. Your route should also be a continuous journey.

Action4Youth Silver Expedition Programme

Our 2020 silver programme is a comprehensive package that includes all training, the 2 expeditions required and, unlike other expedition providers, all transport to and from the expedition locations. There are no other hidden costs.

For direct entrants the programme also includes a 2 day training weekend and a certificated first aid course which are required prior to the expeditions.

The training weekend and first aid course are not required for those who already have already been awarded their bronze certificate and have given us sight of it. They will however, have to attend route planning.

Our Silver Walking Expedition package includes

  • 2 day training weekend in Milton Keynes, including 1 day certificated First Aid training
  • 1 day additional training in Milton Keynes
  • 2 Expeditions (I practice and 1 qualifier)
  • Transport between Milton Keynes and the expedition location
  • Experienced, qualified and friendly leaders who will do all they can to support your successful completion
  • Camp fees for expedition nights
  • Kit advice
  • Maps, Compasses and Stoves (excluding Gas) (to be returned at the end of the expeditions)
