Expedition Training – Week 3

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 5 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Tonight was the last week of the intense training, next week we will be checking kit to make sure you are happy with everything, issuing loan kit, and going through the required pre expedition checks. As such next week is only for those going on the September Practice Expedition.


Next week we need to see:

  • Walking boots
  • Any equipment you are not sure about
  • Printout from red cross first aid quiz (click here)
  • All sections on eDofE marked as started (there are still a few gaps!)


The absolute deadline for parental consent forms is WEDNESDAY 23rd SEPTEMBER – no form, no expedition, no exception.


Finally, well done to everyone who has been at all three training sessions, we know it’s been a bit boring and a lot of information to take in but you’re all showing some real skill!
