Home - DofE Adventure

Join us for an unforgettable weekend

Every year, thousands of young people take part in an expedition as part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award. They push themselves out of their comfort zone, enjoying the great outdoors, building resilience and understanding the importance of teamwork.
The DofE Adventure is the chance for everyone aged 18+ to get a taste of an expedition. Taking place at Gallops Farm in the South Downs, it's going to be an unforgettable weekend hiking and camping, fundraising for the DofE charity.

Enjoy a challenging hike

Whether you go it alone or as a team, you’ll experience a fabulous camaraderie as you walk. Checkpoints along the way offer drinks and snacks to keep you going.
