Duke of Edinburgh Award Trips

The Duke of Edinburgh Awards were created as a way for each participant to set individual goals for personal improvement and growth. As part of this award there is an outdoor component for each of the three levels. A big part of what we do at Ridge Wilderness Adventures is get people outside and empowered to achieve their personal goals. In saying this, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is a great fit, as it involves the outdoor empowerment and growth that we love to see. We offer adventures for all three levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award: Bronze, Silver, and Gold, as well as Preliminary Training and Practice Journeys.
