“Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions”

We are an approved activity provider for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and specialise in providing both land and canoe based expeditions.

Our aim is to facilitate young people through their expedition with as much ease as practically possible while upholding the ethos and values of the award, whilst making the process simple and effective for both participants and their leaders.

‘To inspire young people to develop initiative and a spirit of adventure and discovery, by planning, training for and completing an adventurous self-sufficient journey, as part of a team.’ Taken from the Duke of Edinburgh Expedition Guide, 13th Edition.

As a former teacher in a further education college I have seen the effects of the award first hand on developing a young person’s skill, confidence, self-esteem; inspiring them to push further and chase down opportunities and in doing so making themselves stand out to colleges, universities and to future employers.

We offer the expedition in two forms, walking at all levels and paddlesports at silver and gold.

We can provide use of the group equipment (tents, stoves, maps, compasses and first aid), all of which is high quality and well maintained.

If all you are looking for is staff to facilitate your own training and expedition programme we can supply both supervisors and assessors, please contact info@rockriver.co.uk for more information.
