Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Bronze Award is the entry level of the DofE Awards, and the focus here is on foundational outdoor skills such as navigation, safety awareness, logistics and planning. In our experience the ideal expedition at this stage is hill walking as the group will be learning the basic skills of navigation and camp craft, as well as group management.

Venues: In most cases this Award can be run in your local area. We already have numerous risk-assessed areas all over the UK.

Preparation at this level should not be overlooked. We provide a high level of training here to aid the groups in navigation and camp skills, which is the starter for all their adventures to come, for the rest of their lives. We have found that groups who have been properly trained at this level find that the following Awards (Silver and Gold) are much easier and more enjoyable.

The duration of the Expeditions at this level are as follows:

2 days and 1 night

At least 6 hours during the daytime (at least 3 of which must be spent journeying)
