Alongside Scouting, 3rd Chalkwell Bay gives youth members the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award with us.
We are now canvassing interest for new groups to start Bronze and Silver DofE Awards for this school year for participants in school Year 9 or above. We have run this at 3rdCB for 3 years now, with increasing numbers successfully completing Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.
We’re still unsure what 2021 will look like in terms of our ability to run expeditions, but we have every intention of making this work where we can under DofE and Scouting guidelines. By completing all other sections of the awards young people will receive the Duke of Edinburgh Certificate of Achievement, and ‘catch up’ with the expedition when the situation allows.
If you would like to register or find out more information, fill in the form at 3rdCB.org.uk/dofe-interest or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the team will be in touch. We will arrange a Zoom call in November to give you more information, introduce the proposed programme and explain how to get started.
