At Wildcountry Consultants it is our experience that the requirements of no two schools or organisations are alike.

We are happy to work with and support your staff, run your Bronze or Gold only, or manage your entire DofE programe, it is up to you.

For a Fully Managed DofE Programe
The costs outlined below are dependent on numbers, where you want your expeditions to take place and that there is someone on site from the school to deal with pastoral issues during the expedition.

The price include camp site fees, free use of high quality group kit: tents, stoves and maps. Completion of all DofE panel documentation, kit lists, risk assessments, parental and legal documentation and individualy tailored practice and assessed reports.

These costs are built around two teams of seven, smaller numbers may require slightly higher prices, likewise larger numbers can attract discounts, and, where appropriately qualified school staff can assist in the running of the expedition, prices may be lower still.
