Duke of Edinburgh

E2M are offering the chance to achieve your Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. Have your chance to earn a prestigious, nationally recognised award, that could help with future employment! You could have something great to put on your CV as well as build up a grand series of skills… FOR FREE! 

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers. The DofE is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life. To find out more about the Award, head to dofe.org 

Most places will charge you to be able to complete your Duke of Edinburgh Award. With us it’s completely FREE! AND we can offer you the chance to do everything you need to complete your Duke of Edinburgh Award with our other ongoing clubs! 

We have a maximum capacity of DofE places, so may have a waiting list. Once you sign up, you will receive an e-mail, either inviting you along or confirming you are on our waiting list. 

Please note that upon signing up we will ask you for a Letter of Interest. Your place doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award with Escape2Make will not be confirmed until you have submitted your Letter of Interest. To find out more about the Letter of Interest sign up now! 


What happens?

The creative expedition will be the highlight of your DofE journey. Join us for an overnight camping adventure! 

Transport will be provided to and from Lancaster. All camping equipment will be provided, however, we encourage bringing sensible clothing and footwear along with you! 

You won’t just be walking around in the woods! There will be opportunities for you to learn practical and creative skills along the way. On previous expeditions we have taken part in: 

  • pottery 
  • working with phases of the moon 
  • using plants for first aid 
  • vlogging your expedition

  • wool-crafts and more!

Duke of Edinburgh Video

Our unique creative expeditions have been designed by our youth board who wanted to come up with a much more relaxing, accessible, creative version of D of E. We think what they’ve designed is awesome. Watch the video to see for yourself what happened in our last D of E expedition.
