Duke of Edinburgh’s Award


We are now an Approved Activity Provider for the expedition section of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  We will be providing expedition training in both Walking and Canoeing expeditions. 

They are great fun to do and are recognised by universities and employers.  It provides them with new experiences, develops skills they may not have know they had and enjoyment of the outdoors at the same time.

Starting out with the prepration and training, then the practice and finally the expedition and presentation section being signed off by our DofE assessors. Our experienced instructors/assessors will organise everything taking the pressure off the teachers/youth workers, group leaders etc.


We can run all of these over a number of weekends, school holidays or during the week whichever suites you best.  We are very flexible with how we run it, if you want us to come to your school for the preparation and training stage we can do this, and then run the final expedition in your area or in beautiful Pembrokeshire, we can tailor our programme to suit you.
