Young Leader Opportunities

There are currently opportunities for Young Leaders in both our Cubs & Scout Troops. E-mail us at [email protected] if interested.

Duke Of Edinburgh Award Scheme

We can arrange to register Explorers for the DofE Award Scheme. Our experience says that this works best if there is a group of you at the same level which gives us critical mass for organising expeditions etc.

You can download the application form here

Please remember that you must agree what you're going to achieve for a section with your assessor, and upload & gain approval on eDofE before you commence an activity.

Please e-mail us at [email protected]dulwich.org.uk with any questions.
