What training do I need to do?
Although leaders are in the vicinity to remotely supervise you, DofE requires you to complete the expedition as a group without having a leader close to you. We will provide the basic training you need to be safe and to handle any emergencies. This covers many of the skills you may well have developed while in the Scouts and Explorers: navigation, camping, cooking on stoves, first aid and emergency procedures and care for the environment.
Note that, at Silver and Gold, you will be building on what you have already learned so that you are ready for the more challenging expeditions ahead. The topics will be much the same, but you will practise so your skills develop.
