DoE Bronze Practice Journey

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award Bronze Practice Adventurous Journey

An introduction to adventure and discovery in the great outdoors, Bronze level is about working as a team and developing an understanding of expedition preparation and planning.

The stepping-stone to the qualifying journey, the Bronze practice journey is an overnight event in [location, ie one of Auckland’s regional parks].
An opportunity to put your skills into practice and get your gear list figured out for future journeys, this trip is a big learning curve that’s lots of fun.
After packing your own backpack, you’ll walk to your destination, prepare the campsite and sleep in a tent, before packing up and tramping back the next day.
