Looking to take part in a Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition in your area? We’ve got you covered!
We’re offering a unique opportunity to Girlguiding Scotland DofE participants at the Bonaly Outdoor Centre near Edinburgh. The Open Bronze Expedition event will be a mixture of training, practice, preparation, a qualifying expedition and reporting so when it’s time to go home you’ll have completed the expedition section.
It’s taking place at Bonaly Outdoor Centre near Edinburgh which has easy transport links, including a bus from Edinburgh city centre that will drop you off nearby. Get more info on their website.
Please note the cost of travelling to and from this event is not covered.
As this expedition is being partly subsidised by the DofE Diamond Fund it only costs £30 each to come along. This will cover all the accommodation costs (camping), food while you’re onsite, all training materials, handouts and the loan of maps for training and during the expedition.
The cost for leaders and Gold residential participants keen to come along in a supporting role (limited places available) is £10 each.
This is a fully catered event but you’ll be expected to plan and purchase your own meals during the qualifying expedition (which lasts one night and two days) so please bring money for this part of the trip.
We need leaders to come along and help – all levels of experience welcome! This is a great opportunity to gain more experience by working alongside those who might have more experience in different aspects of the DofE award.
