Duke of Edinburgh Award

Expedition Dates

All expeditions are run dependent upon availability of safety staff, participants successful completion of compulsory training and attendance at DofE meetings.

We do try to meet participants' demands to choose their teams; however, dependent upon numbers on expeditions, it may be necessary to combine or split groups to ensure enough places for all DofE Participants.
