Expedition resources and information
The Expedition section of the DofE can be very challenging but also extremely rewarding to a young person with additional needs.
The best starting point for informaion about the section is our recently updated Expedition Guide.
The guide is designed to be the focal point of DofE policy and support for Leaders deliverying expeditions for young people who have additional needs. The 20 conditions of the expedition are covered in detail in the guide and there is also advice and information on a range of issues including modes of transport, variations and integration.
Below is a varied selection of resources which Leaders and participants have found useful in preparation and training for expeditions.
We also have further expedition resources available here.
Resources from the network
We welcome any documents from DofE Leaders and Supervisors working with young people who have additional needs so we can share them with the DofE network. Please send items for consideration to [email protected]
