Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. You need to be aged between 14 and 24 and realise there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa watching life pass you by!

You can participate in programmes at three levels, which when completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

You achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities - Volunteering, Physical, Skills, Expedition and for Gold, a Residential.  You'll find yourself helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills and going on an expedition.

At Kemnal we provide you with the full package of support and training. Weekly sessions are run to prepare you for your expedition which include navigation, camp craft, first aid, route planning and more. The leaders guide you through the other sections giving you advice and ideas as to activities you can engage in.
