DECADES OF
EXPERIENCE,
A LIFETIME
OF PASSION

Sam Sykes™, the founder, has been involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award from the moment he was born.

His father and mentor, Stuart Sykes, has dedicated 40 years of his life delivering the DofE as a volunteer to young people. This earned Stuart an MBE in 2002 for his services to young people.

Their knowledge and experience of, and dedication to, the DofE is unmatched in this country, delivering unique and exceptional expeditions throughout the UK. Sam himself has achieved remarkable things, both personally and professionally, in the great outdoors.

He climbed his first mountain at only three years of age, before going on to scale Europe’s largest mountain by the time he was 18.

His passion, experience and dedication is reflected throughout the organisation he has created and has led Sam Sykes Ltd to become one of the world’s leading providers of DofE expeditions.
