DofE Expedition Provision
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) has the widest reach of any UK youth charity. A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. Zest for Adventure can offer a DofE Expedition Section programme at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels tailored to meet your requirements.
DofE Open Expeditions
We offer a choice of Bronze, Silver and Gold walking expedition programmes run by friendly and experienced leaders who specialise in DofE expeditions. These expedition programmes are ideal for individuals or small groups who cannot make their school’s dates or who don’t have a team to complete their expeditions with.
DofE Direct Expeditions
We offer a choice of DofE Direct walking expedition programmes run by friendly and experienced leaders who specialise in DofE expeditions. These expeditions programmes are all at Gold level and are ideal for individuals or small groups who are enrolled with DofE Direct.
Countryside Leader Award
The Countryside Leader Award (CLA) is for adults who wish to lead walks and camping expeditions in non-remote, lowland countryside. This corresponds with the recommended Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Bronze and Silver Expedition terrain. We offer both CLA Training and Assessment Courses.
In line with government regulations and advice, we are very pleased to confirm that, when permitted, we will resume running expeditions with appropriate control measures in place. We comply with the government's Guidance on Managing the Risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and have been certified as COVID-19 Secure. In addition, we follow the Outdoor Education Sector's COVID-19 Secure Policy and Procedures.
