Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions are a speciality of ours. We’ve been involved with the DofE since 2009, helping to provide expeditions with schools and youth groups, for both Bronze and Silver participants. Our proven format covers the DofE common training syllabus (CTS) through a mixture of indoor and outdoor inputs. The participants are also offered supervised day walks, on which they’ll learn and practice expedition skills before undertaking a practice expedition and finally their assessed expedition.
Our expeditions take in a mix of the North Pennines and Hadrians Wall country.
What’s included in our expedition support package…
A full day’s classroom based input of those (CTS) topics more suited to this learning environment.
2 day walks, on which we’ll further deliver and build on skills from the training day.
Practice and assessed expeditions – 2 days Bronze (1 night camping) or 3 days Silver (2 nights camping). Each expedition.
Tent (2 person)
Sleeping mat (each)
Stove and fuel (2 person)
