The Duke Of Edinburgh Award

Brigs is registered as a Trained Activity Provider with the Ontario Duke of Edinburgh Award. Check the table below to see which voyages qualify, or book a journey with us for your whole Award group.

What is The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award?

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning, which challenges young people to dream big, celebrate their achievements and make a difference in their world. Through developing transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, cultivating a sense of adventure and volunteering in their community, the Award helps young people to find their purpose, passion and place in the world. It operates in more than 130 countries and territories, helping to inspire millions of young people to take control and make their own choices.

Anyone 14 - 24 years old can enrol. Participants choose their own activities within these sections so no two Awards are exactly the same. The Duke of Ed is referred to as a “marathon not a sprint” because it represents a commitment over time to each section.

You can accomplish one or all of the Duke of Ed sections through Brigs! Most of our summer courses qualify as Bronze, Silver, or Gold Adventurous Journeys or Gold Projects - see the table below! The other sections can be completed through our shore-based winter program.
