Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh programme is designed to help young people between the age of 14 and 24 gain something more from life and develop additional skills that can help improve their personal and professional life in the future.

The programme has three different types of awards – Gold, Silver and Bronze, each with sections to complete in physical activity, learning a new skill, volunteering and an expedition.


Freax Adventures, as an AAP, can work with you help you with completion of your Duke of Edinburgh challenge and the different activities you will be required to do. We can provide you with training and preparation for the Expedition section of Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. Whether you require localised practice sessions or learning on the hills we can help you gain the essential skills in camp craft, navigation, fitness and team work, to help get your group through the Expedition section.
