Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award
Welcome to the start of the Duke of Edinburgh journey.
This is where students begin to learn about kayaking, camping, planning, navigation, self-sufficiency and being part of a team. Their learning here, will form the basis for further development at the silver and gold levels.
We understand that this may be the first time many of your students have kayaked, gone camping, cooked a meal, washed up etc. In recognising this, we have tailored our bronze journeys so that the students have a responsibility to complete the core criteria, but are assisted and guided along that path by our staff. Together with school staff, we will work toward school, individuals and the award goals.
For our bronze journeys we offer a range of locations, generally based around the Hawkesbury River system. However, if you have a particular location that you would like to use, let us know and we will scout it out and let you know if it is a viable venue. Further, we offer 2 camping options – kayak camping (where we pack everything into the kayaks and head off to camp), or base camping (where we set up camp, paddle to a scenic location for the day and come back to the camp). The choices we offer are varied and very flexible.
Our highly skilled and qualified staff will make sure that your time on the water is not only enjoyable, but safe as well. Our enviable safety record is not something that happens by chance. We go to great lengths to ensure that the conditions we are paddling in, are not only safe, but suitable to the skill level of the students. Leading into a paddle, we will be in constant contact with school staff with weather updates, alternatives or other options.
Our aim is to see every student who participates in the Duke of Edinburgh Award with us, not only complete this level, but have a great time doing it. We hope we have helped to instill an appreciation of the outdoors and their fellow team members, a new set of skills that they can use throughout their lives and the determination to progress to silver and gold levels.
So get on board with us…..give us a call and we can book a tour for you, or organise a meeting to discuss your needs.
