Bendrigg Bronze Expedition

We currently run the training & qualifying courses for established groups with a minimum of 4 participants.

There is potential to also run training, practice and qualifying courses for Individuals looking to complete this section of their Bronze DofE but there would need to be a minimum of 4 participants for the course to go ahead.

*Changes to the Bronze DofE mean that a presentation is no longer required but a debrief with the assessor is.

The DofE are very supportive towards those with additional needs and in return this allows us to adapt expeditions to make it achievable for all.

We can provide :
• Expeditions via foot, wheelchair, canoe or a combination of all
• Accommodation can be either camping with specialist equipment or wheelchair accessible bunkhouse
• All safety and specialist equipment
• All group equipment supplied including cooking stoves, tents, rucksacks, roll mats, maps & compasses and first aid kit.
• Supervision throughout the training and expeditions
• Accredited assessors
• Support with the variation and green forms
• Experienced staff

Please contact Jo or Jenny to find out more and add your name to the list of interested parties.
