Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions

Brenscombe is surrounded by ideal expedition locations

 Bronze Expeditions in the Purbecks or New Forest

Whether on foot, by bike or on the water, expeditions are fundamental to the outdoor experience. We can support D of E expeditions with qualified staff, logistics or just somewhere to stay. With two outdoor centres providing a base in the Purbecks and the New Forest we have the infrastructure and staff team to ensure that your training and final expedition goes smoothly.

 Lasting benefits from expeditions

The expedition challenges usually form long-lasting memories that the young people take home, not forgetting the excitement of travelling under one's own steam through a changing environment. At Brenscombe we are very lucky to have our own spit of land on the shore of Poole Harbour. It is ideal for wilderness camping with both land and water access as well as basic facilities. The perfect location to provide a sense of adventure and the feeling of isolation.
