Gold Open Expedition Programme
The Expedition section involves planning, training for and doing a 4 day (3 nights) expedition.
At Gold you'll also do a Residential section – We offer these weeks at Craigower Lodge. Staying away from home for five days and four nights doing a shared activity with people you don't know. It's great fun and a real chance to do something different!
