Christmas List

Encourage your participants to think about what kit they might need to complete their Award. It might be expedition kit (rucksack, boots, etc.) or something to assist with the Physical section (a racket, running kit, etc.) and think about putting these on their Christmas list so that Santa might help them achieve their Award!

Save money on your DofE expedition by kit sharing

By The DofE

Contact other local DofE groups or centres (including other schools, youth clubs, or Guiding or Scout groups) to see if they would consider sharing any expedition kit or minibuses. Approach local outdoor stores for discounted kit opportunities.
