DoE Silver Qualifying Journey

Armed with the knowledge and skills you gained from your Bronze award, Silver pushes your adventurous spirit further by encouraging discovery that deepens the connection to yourself, your teammates, and the great outdoors.

The final stage in the Silver award, the qualifying journey is a three-day, two-night adventure in [location, ie one of Auckland’s regional parks].
This expedition is your chance to step it up and show that you can survive in New Zealand’s great outdoors. So, using everything you’ve learnt so far, you and your team will lead the way as you explore a different region.
From the get-go, it will be up to you to steer this journey of discovery. Your Social Nature Movement instructor will be there to offer guidance. But this trip should be as student-led as possible.
