Hampshire Open Gold Expedition programme

Open Gold

The Hampshire Open Gold Expedition programme runs from November to the following July every year. It is our flagship Gold programme run by staff from the Hampshire County Council DofE training team. It is suitable for 16 - 24yr olds (you must be under 25yrs of age on completion) and provides a 'start-to-finish' Expedition programme in order to complete the Expedition section of your Gold award!

Whether you are on your own or part of a group, please get in touch. The programme will develop your self confidence, independence, team working skills and you can meet new people. If you live in Hampshire and have nowhere to enrol for your Gold, we can put you in touch with a local DofE advisor to support you through the other 4 sections and through to Gold completion.

The Expedition programme costs £685 for 3 training weekends, 2 practice and 1 assessment expedition. You could visit National Parks such as Snowdonia, The Lake District, Brecon Beacons, Dartmoor.


You must have enrolled for your Gold award before November in order to participate in the programme.
