Silver DofE expedition 2022

By |

Have you completed your Bronze award and are looking for the next challenge? If you are in Year 10+, under 24, a member of Girlguiding, and want to do your Silver award, then this is for you. We will provide comprehensive training and support you in completing a walking expedition. You will need to complete the other three sections – Physical, Skills and Volunteering – to achieve the award.


Key dates:

  • 19 – 20 March 2022: two full training days, camping overnight (West Berkshire).
  • 22 (evening) - 24 April 2022: practice expedition in West Berkshire, camping.
  • 28 – 30 May 2022: assessed expedition in the Chiltern Hills.

You’ll need to attend all dates to complete your Silver Expedition section.

We will send out details of what is needed for each session in advance. The expedition will be run in line with Covid-19 guidance applicable at the time. If we are not able to camp, we will run a “go-home overnight” expedition.

Training will build on the skills developed at Bronze level.

The cost is £100 which covers the training days, practice and assessed expeditions, and group equipment (tent, trangia, maps etc.). To keep costs down transport is provided by parents. If you want to take part, please complete the application form.

Email the completed form to the County DofE team at The deadline for applications and payments is 31 January 2022. 

If you have not yet registered for your DofE Silver award, you need to complete the DofE Participant Enrolment form (and pay the enrolment fee) and email this at the same time.
