Queen’s Scout/Gold DofE Award Expeditions - August 2022
19th - 24th August 2022
This is a 5night camp in the Lake District, where participants will undertake 1 day of training, with a 3-day Gold DofE/QSA practice expedition in wild country terrain or complete a 4 day Gold DofE/QSA assessed expedition. Each team is led by an experienced Supervisor who has responsibility for their walking and safety in the hills.
The location for the event will be starting from our base in Serbergham Cumbria and campsites and route will be organised by the teams themselves with support from our leader team.
Participants will need to be self-sufficient for the duration of the event, providing all equipment (a list will be provided prior to the event) and food (we will advise and help you plan this in the pre-event meetings). Self-sufficiency also includes organising their own travel to and from the area (we will advise on good public transport options, and we can provide local transport between train/coach stations and the start/finish of the event).
How do we prepare:
Prior to the expedition, we will meet virtually to look at routes, kit and food. During this event, teams will plan their expedition and go through the requirements for the event. Dates will be issued after 1st May 2022.
How much does it cost?
The cost is £80, this includes training, all camp fees, booking of a Supervisor/Assessor for the event and training materials. Food and travel are not included in this cost. Participants will need to make their own way to and from the Lake District and to/from our training event. .
This is payable via bank transfer or by bank card, details of which will be given upon sign up.
