Bronze expedition information

We'll help you plan and organise your expedition

We’re planning to give Bronze participants the opportunity to complete the expedition part of their award during 2023/2024.

To sign up to take part in Chelmsford Explorer Scouts Bronze DofE Expeditions, you must be an Explorer Scout in Chelmsford, aged over 13½ years old and in school year 9 or above by Tuesday 16th February 2024. We cannot accomodate those who are completing their award with other organisations.

The sign up deadline for our 2023/2024 season has now passed. Details about our next Bronze expedition will be published during summer 2024.
