Duke of Edinburgh Award (open to all Explorer and Network Scouts)

Kent Scouts operates the Duke or Edinburgh's Award (DofE) giving young people aged 14-24 the opportunity to achieve this widely recognised award, whilst learning new skills along the way.

There are three progressive DofE award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These directly align with Scouting's Top Awards meaning dual awards can be completed together. Chief Scout's Platinum Award - Bronze, Chief Scout's Diamond Award - Silver, King's Scout Award - Gold.

Find out about the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, register and opportunities via our dedicated website.
