The Duke of Edinburgh Award
As an Approved Activity Provider (AAP), we offer a range of walking, cycling and canoe expedition options across both the Bronze and Silver levels of the award.
We regularly run expeditions across the country, and take great pride in everything that we do. We believe that every group has different needs, as a result we only offer tailored packages. Please contact us for a quote.
All of our instructors hold the relevant National Governing Body qualifications to lead the activity they are undertaking, and will have worked with us in the past prior to leading groups in the outdoors. Expedition assessors always hold the DofE accredited assessor status. We operate with small group ratios, ensuring that participants have the best possible experience throughout their expeditions.
All of our managed expeditions include a space for one client leader per team. This includes all meals from the first evening onwards, and subsidised accommodation fees. We also welcome extra staff, partners and children at the campsite, meaning that weekends aren't 'given up' to volunteer on expeditions.
All of our managed expeditions include a set of emergency equipment. This varies dependent on the expedition, but includes a first aid kit, emergency instructions and a mobile phone as standard.
We have a well maintained fleet of tents and stoves for hire on any of our bookings, and also offer a small amount of personal equipment hire wherever we can help.
For canoe and cycle expeditions, we can also arrange canoe and cycle hire.
We run a series of open expeditions throughout the year, with a range of locations, usually within a hour of London. All of our open expeditions include group equipment, so there is no need to buy expensive tents, stoves and emergency equipment. We can also arrange some personal equipment hire where required.
All of our upcoming expeditions can be seen below. If you are looking for an expedition that isn't listed here, please contact us.
