The Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award
The Silver Expedition is a three day expedition, with two nights spent camping. The expedition should involve around 7 hours of planned activity, with at least three and a half of these hours spent journeying.
Basic Price: £250 + VAT Per Participant – 8 Day Package
The package includes:
- 1 Day Pre Expedition Training (in expedition area).
- Practice Expedition – 3 days, 2 nights.
- 1 Day Route Planning.
- Qualifying Expedition – 3 days, 2 nights.
- Camping fees for 3 nights on both Training and Qualifying expeditions (1 night pre expedition, two nights on expedition).
Areas we use for Silver expeditions include, but are not limited to, The South Downs, The New Forest, Brecon Beacons, The Peak District and Dartmoor. If you are interested in an expedition in another area, please get in touch.
- Personal Insurance.
- Equipment (see below).
It is generally expected that participants should provide their own equipment for expedition. This is inherent to the award, and provides participants with an opportunity to develop independence, self-sufficiency and to take ownership of their expedition experience.
We understand however that the cost of this equipment could be prohibitive for some participants, and as a result we are able to provide some equipment for hire at an additional cost. Please see our Expedition Equipment Hire pricelist for more information
