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 in the outdoors, as a result we only offer tailored packages.  Please contact us for a quote.
Safety kits


We take great pride in the safe management of all expeditions, as a result all of our DofE activities include our safety packs.  These include:

  • An emergency mobile phone, allowing participants to contact the expedition staff whenever there is network.

  • First aid kits for both staff and participants.

  • Emergency help sheets, supporting participants in the management of any incidents with confidence until help arrives.

  • Tracking capabilities, allowing staff to track groups in most terrain using up to date Ordinance Survey technology (this is not a substitute to good group management and quality supervision)

Equipment hire

We have a range of equipment that is available for hire on any of our expeditions, with the intention of supporting schools with the cost of managing the DofE, helping students get the best value for money.

Staff Welfare

Our staff welfare option takes all the stress and hassle out of working on a DofE expedition for any school staff that are involved; and offers a great social aspect to the expedition.  Our staff welfare option includes:​

  • An evening meal every night and breakfast every morning for any staff.

  • Tented accommodation

  • Staff social space at each campsite with hot drink facilities.

  • lunch options from day 2 onward on any expedition.

Canoe and cycle hire

As a paddle sport and cycling expedition provider, we can offer canoe and bike hire from one of our partner organisations.  For more information on this, please get in touch.

Open expeditions

We run a series of open expeditions throughout the year, with a range of locations both around the country and within a hour of London.  All of our open expeditions come with our group equipment package free of charge.  This means that there is no need to buy tents, stoves and emergency equipment.  We can also arrange personal equipment hire.

All of our upcoming open expeditions can be seen on our courses page.
