On Sunday we will be supporting the Bronze participants with their final preparations for their qualifying weekend.
Qualifying Expedition and final preparations
The DofE guidelines were reviewed last year and there is no longer a requirement for a practice expedition for the bronze level. Therefore, the qualifying weekend has been brought forward from 20-21 July to 06-07 July. To ensure the group is ready, we are running an expedition training day on Sunday 30th June (this was Saturday but it clashed with the CAG car wash). We will meet at Bickenhill at 11am and expect to finish around 4pm. If the location changes to somewhere more exciting, we’ll let you know! Read more
