DofE Expedition provider Sam Sykes

DofE BRONZE EXPEDITION

“Having had the services of Sam Sykes for the last 3 years, I have been impressed with the sheer quality of the experience that the young people get. The Sam Sykes instructors are a bunch of professional, dedicated, caring and most importantly individually inspirational for the groups that they supervise and train. The company caters for all sizes of groups and the speed and efficiency of communication and assistance with the launching and delivery of the award is second to none. If you want young people to have a quality experience during the expeditions, then the Sam Sykes company must be the first port of call.”

The practice expedition looks at achieving further development of skills learnt in training.
Participants will be supervised during practice, with parts being unsupervised but assistance at hand.
