Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a prestigious youth development program that originated in the United Kingdom. It was founded by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1956 and has since become an internationally recognized program aimed at empowering young people to develop skills for life and work.

The award program is open to young people aged 14 to 24, and it consists of three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level has four sections that participants must complete: Volunteering, Skills, Physical and Expedition.

Participants must complete each section and meet specific requirements to achieve their respective award level. The program aims to promote personal development, self-reliance, and a sense of responsibility among young people, preparing them for the challenges of adult life and fostering a spirit of adventure and exploration.

Our Bronze hiking DofE Expeditions primarily take place on the outskirts of Edinburgh in the Pentland Hills and Lomond Hills. Both of these locations provide safe and rural landscaped for Duke of Edinburgh Groups to work on their navigation, teamwork, camping, and leadership skills. For our Silver and Gold hiking expeditions, we start moving further up to the North of Scotland, where the terrain and navigation gets a little bit more difficult.
