Duke of Edinburgh

Expeditions tailored to your group

Expedition Pathway

As an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for The Duke of Edinburgh Award’s expeditions, Bronze, Silver and Gold, we can offer you a complete package of training at each Award level, through to the final assessed expedition.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is highly regarded by higher education professionals and employers.  We provide comprehensive education material to aid the training which is important for your group to plan their expedition safely.  We have worked with many groups to deliver the training and assessment expeditions for mainstream schools, youth groups and specialist education.

Mode of transport

  • Mountain Biking
  • Walking
    • Bronze – i.e. lowland Yorkshire Dales
    • Silver – i.e. Yorkshire Dales
    • Gold – i.e. Lake District

Mountain Biking requires additional training including all the equipment.  This will incur additional costs, but will offer a completely different experience to the walk.

Breakdown

With our inherent flexibility, groups can opt for us to deliver all three sections or just one section of the Award.  We will put together a bespoke programme to suit your requirements, complete all of the necessary documentation.  Though we have included a price below for those who would like a standard package encompassing all of the elements below.

Example of a Bronze Expedition:

Pre-Expedition Planning and Practice Expedition – Over the course of this stage, which can be done as a 3-day expedition block or several evening sessions with a 2-day expedition, covers all the necessary skills to become proficient enough to complete the assessed expedition.  These include organisation, equipment, navigation, cooking, campcraft, route planning and team work.

Assessed Expedition – Remotely supervised by our staff, the candidates will take everything they’ve learned from the training and practice element and work together to plan and execute their expedition together as a team.

These prices include, training, practise and assessed expedition, camp fees and any equipment, including stoves, tents, waterproofs and boots (if required).  Other items are available to borrow on request.

Bronze Award – £175.00 p/p

Silver Award – £250.00 p/p

Gold Award – £375.00 p/p

We don’t specialise in large numbers, and can accommodate a maximum of 28 participants.  We also don’t run open expeditions, but we know of others who would be able to facilitate either larger groups or open expeditions.
