Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Our aim is to make DofE expeditions educational and exciting for young people; and for DofE Leaders running the expeditions easy and most importantly enjoyable.

Alfresco Adventures can help your pupils on their journey through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, at all levels Bronze, Silver or Gold award. The award is truly inspiring and can develop pupil’s skills, confidence and outlook on life; making them stand out to colleges, universities and to future employers.

We will help you complete the expedition paperwork, the operating authority notifications, green forms and risk assessments.

Our involvement can be as much or as little as required, ranging from one off supervision to full on training.

We offer three modes of transport- walking, cycling and canoeing and can also provide a first aid qualification to pupils as additional training.

We provide free use of the following group kit, which is all high quality and well maintained:

  • Vango Mirage/ Helvellyn 300 tents (3 birth)
  • Roll matts and sleeping bags
  • Lifesystems first aid kits
  • Compasses (Silva Ranger and Expedition 4)
  • Trangia stoves (we prefer to use gas trangias as we find it cleaner and safer)
  • Rucksack covers (Coloured coded for each team)
  • Laminated OS 1:2500 maps for training and assessments. On expedition training we my use OS 1:50000 and Harvey 1:40000 maps as we believe it can help with training.

We also have a large range of waterproof jackets and trousers, plus walking boots if participants require them.

Any damaged or lost equipment that has been issued by Alfresco Adventures will be billed to the school/ organisation.  For the recommended DofE kit list please click the link.

We like to keep our pricing simple so for all our training and qualifying expeditions we charge £45 per person + VAT, per day (minimum of 12 participants).

Canoe hire is an additional cost of £28 per canoe, per day. We have Silverbirch Broadlands 15 and 16 Canoes which are perfect for multi-day trips. Within the cost, you will receive:

  • Canoe
  • Paddle
  • Buoyancy aid
  • Drybags to store kit
  • Cag (a protective layer helping to keep you dry, trap heat and reduce wind chill)
  • As well as all the other standard issued kit

A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from. You just need to be aged 14 and 24 and realise there's more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by. DofE Website

“Sam is a great friendly bloke, top guide and someone you are more than happy to spend many days with. He just guided us for 4 days on part of the UK Coast to Coast walk with ease, fun, care and knowledge. I can't speak to highly of Sam.”
