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, a qualifying 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 qualifying expedition. You also need to train for physical fitness. Our training programme involves theory and practical training, including practice journeys, leading to the ability to journey safely in wild country and demonstrate qualities of leadership and teamwork.
