DOFE | BRONZE | EXPEDITION | TRAINING | PRACTICE | WALKING
At Jurassic Watersports, our Training and Practice Expeditions are ran as a 2 day training expedition. The first day is an intensive training day. Usually based from a campsite, we will meet you in the morning, introduce everyone to each other and introduce your instructor team. They will then go through a plan for the next 2 days and conduct a kit check, before running through our basic campcraft training and asking you to set up camp.
Once settled in, we are straight out on the hill. Your instructors will start by putting you through your paces to assess your current navigation ability. Once assessed, they will begin to deliver any training required to get you up to the required standard. After this long and intensive day of training, you will arrive back on camp. Your instructors will then run you through any emergency procedure, first aid or general expedition skills training that couldn't be covered while out on the hill. They will then deliver our basic camp stove safety training and leave you to have some dinner. Over dinner, you will sit down with your team and Instructors to discuss the routes and plan for the next day.
Your second day with us will be a mini walk, still supported by your instructors who will make sure that everyone's skills are up to scratch, ready for an independent qualifying.
At the end of this expedition your instructor team will sit you down and review the last few days and run a group debrief to ensure that you are all prepared to undertake your Qualifying Expedition.
(If you are going on to complete your Qualifying Expedition elsewhere, we are happy to issue a report on this expedition to pass on to the next provider.)Find Out More
