Well done to our 7 Explorers who passed their D of E Bronze Qualifying Expedition in Ashdown Forest this weekend.

The Bronze Expedition is a two day expedition, with one night spent camping. There should be six hours minimum of activity planned each day, with at least three of these hours journeying. 

D of E expeditions teach:

  • First aid and emergency procedures
  • An awareness of risk and health and safety issues
  • Navigation and route planning.
  • Campcraft, equipment and hygiene.
  • Food and cooking.
  • Countryside, Highway and Water Sports Safety Codes.
  • Observation recording and presentations.
  • Team building.
