Following instructions from Scout HQ, all Kent Scout Overnight Expeditions are suspended until further notice.
further details on running DofE during the pandemic can be found here: Guidance for Leading DofE with Scouts

Please contact us for any support with your unit to facilitate locally organised expeditions during this time.
DofE have extended their #dofewithadifference programme variations to 31 December 2022 as social distancing restrictions seem likely to remain in place in one way or another for some time; including expedition variations, additional programme ideas and the awarding of the Certificate of Achievement. Details on these changes can be found here #dofewithadifference. Scouting UK are also discussing the application of these to the Scout Top Awards for those participants not also doing DofE.
Due to these changes we have some further spaces available in our Gold Expedition "with a difference" programme for 2021. BOOKING CLOSED 1ST APRIL 2021 - if more spaces become available for an event later in 2021, we will contact participants via their email on eDofE.
Bronze and Silver Expeditions are being organised locally at District or Unit level, so please speak to your DofE Leader or DESC for further information. If you have no teams available locally, please contact us using the "contact us" form above.
To discuss Gold Expeditions - contact Pat (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss. Advice is that unless you have completed all other sections of your Gold Award and Queen's Scout Award; or are going to be 25 during 2021; you concentrate on completing the other sections and plan for your expedition and residential sections during 2022 - more details on that will appear later in 2021.
We have started planning Gold Expeditions and training for 2021, which can be applied for using this form before 31st January 2021. FORM CLOSED 1st February 2021
