Who is the weekend for?

Are you looking for a Bronze, Silver or Gold assessment expedition but do not have a group of at least 4 people to do it with? Or are you a group of at least 4 planning an expedition but you are all new to it so need some support, or do you not have a Leader who can supervise you? If so this is the weekend for you. You can attend either the practice expedition  or the assessment, or both.  You cannot join an assessed expedition unless you have already completed a practice expedition.

This is open to all those wanting an assessment at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. It is also open to groups running an assessment for the first time who would like support. The Bronze assessment will take place on 31 August – 1 September 2018 and you will need to communicate in advance with your group to do the planning. The Silver assessment will be 30 August – 1 September 2018 and the planning will again be done in advance electronically.  The Gold assessment will be 28 August (afternoon) – 1 September 2018.

Individual participants:

If you do not have a group of your own, so long as at least 4 people apply you will make up a group to complete your practice. You will be communicating electronically with each other in advance to start the planning of the route.

It is essential that all the training is signed off and you have successfully completed a practice before attending for assessment. This will either be recorded on eDofE, or a copy of the signed statement from your guide leader. 

If you attend the practice weekend run by Girlguiding North East England, you will have covered most of the topics.

Leaders of groups:

If you are the adult leader of a Bronze, Silver or Gold group running an expedition for the first time you can make use of our experience and expertise in supervising expeditions.  The campsites will be in the Northern Yorkshire Dales, but your group will be free to plan their own route based on that.  The cost for the weekend will be £5 less per person, assuming a leader comes with the group.  Please provide your own equipment.
