The Expedition Section

For your Expedition section, you will need to undertake an unaccompanied, self-reliant expedition with an agreed aim. 

You must do the correct training for your mode of travel, at least one practice expedition, an assessed expedition and a final presentation in order to complete the section.

Your expedition must conform to the requirements and in particular the 20 Conditions of the expedition section set out in the Award Handbook.

You must be trained in the skills needed to undertake the assessed expedition.  You also need to train for physical fitness.

Tonbridge Gold offers you the opportunity to complete the expedition eithert on foot or in a canoe.

Our training programme involves theory and practical training, including practice journeys, leading to the ability to journey safely in wild country or British rivers and demonstrate qualities of leadership and teamwork.
