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.

Hear what folks are saying!

 I would just like to compliment Dave on a well-organized and informative session, which made for a great learning experience.  Dave's mix of hand’s on activities (letting us try and fail first) and his resulting humour were much appreciated.  He also gave us insight into some aspects of first aid not in field guide – the reasons of how and why various procedures are carried out.   Overall, I now feel a lot more comfortable in how I might deal will an incident in the field.  I am sure my geology students at VIU will appreciate it one day!
