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.

Until further notice all planned expeditions will be based on consecutive day walks - participants will sleep at home and will require drop off and collection from KES (Hill Lane Gate) at prescribed times.

All expedition teams have paperwork deadlines to meet.  Where this is not achieved, teams may be removed at short notice with loss of expedition fees.
