The Bronze expedition section will be completed this year by running a 3 day course consisting of a one day training, immediately followed by a 2 day qualifying expedition (possibly day walks).
There are 3 potential dates for these expeditions and each participant must select a primary and a reserve date out of the following options - these will be sent via a survey monkey to parents (during the Easter break):
- Option 1 - Wed 2 - Fri 4 June 2021 (Half Term)
DofE Bronze 2-4 June 2021 INFORMATION LETTER
- Option 2 - Thu 1 - Sat 3 July 2021 (Endeavour+)
DofE Bronze 1-3 July 2021 ENDEAVOUR - INFORMATION LETTER
Option 3 - Tue 13 - Thu 15 July 2021 (Summer Holiday Week 1)
DofE Bronze 13-15 July 2021 - INFORMATION LETTER
Successful participants with a fully completed Bronze Award can then enrol at Silver and join expeditions planned for the October half-term and the Easter 22 break.
Prior to the Easter break each Bronze participant will have a map and navigation guide issued from the DofE Office (Thursday 25th March during Lunchtime) - Please ensure these go home with you for the break, the following tasks should be completed prior to the return to school and form an essential part of your pre-expedition training.
