About the Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award consists of 4 sections:

  1. Volunteering
  2. Physical
  3. Skills                   These should be completed over timescales of 3 to 6 months
  4. Expedition  (working in groups of 4 – 7 people) setting off on expedition

The Expedition

The expedition consists of two weekend trips:

  • the practice - 2 days walking and 1 night camping
  • the qualifier - 2 days walking and 1 night camping

The Bronze Award is achieved when all sections have been completed, which takes about a year.

To take part in the Meadowhead Duke of Edinburgh Bronze you should:

  • be at least 14yrs
  • enrol & register with the DofE  (this is done through school, please note a fee is required)
  • attend all weekly training sessions (to equip you with the essential  skills for expedition)
  • commit to completing all sections.

To take on the challenge requires a great deal of commitment but is really well worth the effort! It is a prestigious award and widely recognised by universities and employers.
