Duke of Edinburgh
We continue to proudly work with The Oxford Boat Adventure as an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to deliver Bronze, Silver and Gold level expeditions, both on foot and on the water. We have a hugely experienced team of DofE instructors and assessors who will ensure the successful completion of each expedition.
We can work with large groups such as a school Bronze cohort of 100+ participants or work with smaller groups of individuals working towards their Silver or Gold award. We will provide a programme that is tailored to your schools or individual’s needs.
