Tom Thumb Holt Campsite, Splisby.

Course Instructors – Jan Waite, Richard Limmer.

5 places still available.

Thinking of offering your Scouts an Expendition for the Expedition Challenge Award or Explorer sections doing Duke of Edinburgh's Award? This would be the next step to take (although isn't essential).

The training offers all the skills you will need, including sessions on what expedition gear to carry, packing a rucksack for expedition, stoves, food and cooking, route planning, writing route cards and remote supervision. All skills needed if you intend to book a Duke of Edinburgh's Supervisors course.


Cost is £15, you will need to bring your own expedition food for 1 evening meal, 1 breakfast and 1 lunch. The same rules apply as for D of E – NOTHING THAT HAS TO GO IN A FRIDGE!!!!

Please bring all camping equipment, expedition rucksack, stoves and maps for the area. If you think you are missing anything please ask, as we sometimes have kit that can be borrowed.

Bookings and payment can be made through the county office:- email
