Bronze DofE Award

Bronze DofE Award is the starting point in the DofE journey and an introduction to expedition skills. It gives young people the opportunity to explore and be inspired by the outdoors with their peers.

DofE Bronze Expeditions

DofE Bronze Expedition

Our DofE Bronze expedition programmes can be delivered either in the traditional format or designed around your group’s existing skills and abilities and delivered in the modern format of 1-2 training days followed by an assessment.

Our friendly and knowledgeable instructors will ensure participants get the most from their first expedition experience.

If your group have the existing DofE bronze expedition skills and are ready to go straight to their assessment then we can organise this for you as well.
