**Please note, all planned expeditions for 2020 have been postponed until Spring/Summer 2021 due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

This year, Power2 are partnering with the British Exploring Society (BES) on the Landmark project, to offer young people aged 16-21 the opportunity to embark upon two fantastic expeditions to Wales and Finland's Saimaa Lakes. 

We are currently recruiting for a team of young people to take part in these exclusive expeditions, as part of our Young Leaders provision.

The Wales trip will take place from 25th - 30th May 2020 and will prepare explorers for the Finland expedition, which will take place in Summer (6th August - 27th August, 2020). 

On these expeditions you will:

  • Challenge yourself by trying new things
  • Meet new people with similar interests and make new friends
  • Explore amazing and unique landscapes
  • Learn key survival skills to live in the outdoors
  • Receive training in expedition safety, first aid and navigation
  • Improve your confidence, communication skills and develop teamwork and leadership skills. 

You will also have the opportunity to gain:

  • British Exploring Society Expedition Certificates
  • John Muir Explorer Award Certificates
  • Support with Duke of Edinburgh Awards
  • Lifetime membership of British Exploring Society

The expedition group will be supervised by a qualified leadership team including Adventure Leaders, Youth Leaders and a Doctor. All equipment necessary for the completion of the expedition will be provided, including: tents, cooking equipment, sleeping bags, compasses and navigation equipment, safety equipment, waterproof trousers, waterproof jacket, fleece, walking boots, socks and a large rucksack.

Explorers will NEED to have a passport which is in date for the duration of the overseas expedition. Visas are not required for British passport holders. 

If you are interested in applying or finding out more, please get in touch with Will Cole via email at: [email protected] or on 07889 703034.

Places on the expeditions are subject to availability. 

If you know a young person aged 16-21 who may be interested, please share this with them!
