2013 Expedition Schedule
Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers, Duke NS is offering expeditions which are open to all participants. These expeditions are in no way mandatory and we encourage you to plan your own trip. However, some independents or group participants are experiencing difficulty with planning an expedition and these trips are offered as an option. Each trip is organized to meet a specific award requirement. For example, some trips are only Bronze level qualifying while some are Gold level qualifying. Please check the Summer Expedition Schedule for dates and qualifying levels of each trip. The prices listed include all costs of gear rentals that pertain to the trip. For the bike trip this includes bike, helmet, panniers etc.
