    We were one of the first companies to be awarded the sought-after, DofE Approved Activity Provider licence. Since then we have focussed all our efforts on delivering bronze, silver and gold expeditions. We only do DofE so we really are experts in this field.

    We create, plan and deliver inspiring programmes for a wide range of clients throughout the UK. We work with groups of all sizes – from 100 participants on a bronze expedition, to 10 participants on a gold expedition. From an expedition on your doorstep to wild camping in the New Forest or canoeing a Scottish loch we will plan a programme to challenge your group allowing them to develop important practical and personal skills both individually and as part of their team.

    It's our mission to lighten load for DofE coordinators, offering schools the reassurance of a programme that meets DofE requirements as well as strict safety standards.
