The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Did you know that your child can do their DofE with the Club? They’ll be able to put what they’ve learned with CCY to good use – and get a nationally recognised qualification into the bargain.

There are four sections to complete (five at Gold level): Volunteering, Physical, Skills, and Expedition. The fifth section for Gold is a Residential. 

Here are some ideas of what they could do for each section - there's a whole range of other ideas in the video, too!

  • Volunteering
    Help at a local DA, take part in Countryside Care or become a CCY leader and many more.
  • Physical
    There are so many sports to take part in with CCY: netball, football, kayaking, orienteering…
  • Skills
    Youth leader teaches first aid to Camping Club Youth membersFirst aid, cooking, map reading, photography – or something else they’ve always wanted to try!
  • Expedition
    Plan and carry out an overnight expedition for a set number of days (depending on the level).
  • Residential (Gold only)
    Undertake a shared activity in a residential setting away from home for 5 days and 4 nights.

If your child is interested in undertaking their DofE, please contact our National DofE Co-ordinator, Nik Watts, to find out more.
