A little about the Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has been helping young people gain valuable life experience, build confidence and enjoy adventure since it began in 1956.  The Award is open to young people aged 14 – 24, who can work towards either a bronze, silver or gold level  by completing a programme of activities in four areas (five if you’re going for gold): Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition.  For many, the expedition is the most fun and exciting area of the programme – no surprise when you consider that it could be anything from sailing on the Norfolk broads to hiking in Canada or horse riding in the Brecon Beacons!

Whatever adventure you choose, you’ll need the right kit to stay warm, comfortable and safe during your expedition.View products recommended on the DofE kit list, or take a look at the alternatives recommended by GO Outdoors’ experts. Of course, you’ll need to take into account the level and duration of your expedition when choosing your kit.
