Kit List - Expeditions

Making sure you have the correct kit for your expeditions is really important so that you can work successfully and independently in your group. Below is our recommended kit list for expedition participants.

You may also want to see the official DofE Kit Guide which has similar recommendations with subtle differences.

You also shouldn't forget to bring plenty of food! We run a dedicated Expedition Nutrition training session in Term 1 every year, so make sure you come along to that to learn about the best foods to bring for that mid-expedition sugar rush!


Make sure to keep all your clothes in a waterproof bag/rubble sack.
