Here at the Adventure Academy CIC we specialise in running Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions. We love running fun and adventurous expeditions that participants will fondly remember for years to come. We run open DofE expeditions for individuals, programmes for schools and youth groups. and training for Duke of Edinburgh Leaders. Why not see whats available and book today?
We are incredibly proud of the team. They are an enthusiastic and hard working bunch; all outdoor professionals with years of experience working with a wide variety of groups. Every instructor is dedicated to making sure that clients have a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Relax in the knowledge that you’re in safe hands. The team are a diverse lot but as a minimum hold the Mountain Leader Award, outdoor first aid certificates and the DofE Supervisors certificate. Most of the team are also assessors.
The safety of participant’s is paramount to us. Groups are given a wide range of safety equipment including two-way radios, mobile phones, comprehensive first aid kits, group shelters, survival bags, whistles and where appropriate SPOT messengers. Everyone gets training in the safe use of the equipment and emergency protocols just in case the worst should happen.

We provide expeditions for a variety of different organisations. This can be as simple as providing supervision on expeditions, or by delivering the entire expedition programme for the award centre. Whatever you requirements are, we are able to help.
