Pre-Expedition, Planning and Training Sessions
All booked Duke of Edinburgh expeditions come with a 2-hour training session. This is an essential part of the trip that all students are required to attend. The training includes, route planning, food choices, clothing options, suggested equipment, safety procedures, basic first aid, strategic packing and bag organisation. There will be an opportunity to hire or purchase equipment.
It is imperative to have the correct gear to ensure a safe and comfortable trip. We have a range of equipment you can purchase or hire. Our guides will fit you up and teach you how to best and most safely use all of our gear.
Risk Assessment and Management Strategies
A comprehensive and tailored risk assessment/management plan will be supplied to each school who is planning to participate on one of our expeditions.
Permission Notes and Expedition Organisation
We are aware of the necessary, yet time consuming tasks that are required to complete extra-curricular activities in the modern school environment. It is with absolute pleasure that we can provide you with a range of permission notes and all expedition details (including equipment packing checklist). We can also arrange private or public travel arrangements. All you will need to do is pop it onto a school letterhead and get your principals signature.
