Achieving a Gold Award comes with many benefits for your self-esteem, leadership skills and more, but perks go beyond your personal skills…

DofE Gold Award Holders

The Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS) is offering Gold Award recipients free membership for a year. Membership gets you access to discounts, courses and walking clubs near you.

What membership gets you:

-Membership card with discounts at outdoor shops, accommodation and other services
-Access to walking and climbing clubs
-Subsidised mountain training courses, climbing coaching and competitions
-The Scottish Mountaineer magazine four times a year
-And much more

Finishing your Gold soon and want to sign up? Keep an eye out for your completion email that includes the link to the MCofS registration page.

If you’ve completed in the last year and lost track of your free membership email, get in touch via Scotland@DofE.org and we can help you claim your free membership.

We hope that MCofS membership will enable you continue your outdoor adventures with the money-saving offers, networks, training and coaching it includes. Maybe one day you’ll even be able to put it to use helping other young people achieve their Gold Awards. If you’re interested in becoming a DofE Leader, you can find out more on the website.
