Silver expedition information

We'll help you plan and organise your expedition

We’re planning to give Silver 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 15 years old and in school year 10 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 Silver expedition will be published during summer 2024.
