Achieving the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an adventure from beginning to end and the expedition section can give participants some of their most memorable experiences! We run walking and paddling Expeditions all over the country and can tailor the expeditions according to the school’s needs. We help the school with the planning, organising and delivery of the expedition aspect of the DofE Award from start to qualifying finish.
