How much will it cost?
The DofE endeavours to keep your costs down so the current Welcome Pack, which includes the participation fee, is £25.50 for the Bronze and Silver, and £32.50 for the Gold Award. There may be additional costs for activities and Licensed Organisations that run the DofE, such as schools, may add a small fee to cover administration costs etc.
If a school, club or other operator charges you more than this, it is because they include additional costs to them, such as transport or expedition etc. They must tell you of any additional costs and what they cover.
Everyone receives a DofE Card to get discounts on things like kit and expeditions don’t need to be expensive.
