  1. Badger Adventures have run our Bronze, Silver and Gold DofE training and assessed expeditions for the past two years. I have always been hugely impressed with the service Richie and his team have shown us. The expedition leaders have been some of the most professional and experienced that I have come across. The expeditions and routes have always been carefully planned and thought out, they have taken a genuine interest in the pupils and in their personal development and ensured that the expeditions are safe, challenging and exciting. I cannot recommend them more highly.

  2. A huge thank you to Ritchie and the whole team at Badger Adventures. We have just returned from our Silver practice expedition which as the D of E coordinator can be a source of much work, stress and worry, but with Badger Adventures at the helm delivering the training there were no concerns! The students have learnt so much and I am confident that all students have had the same standard of excellent training. I came home to an email from a happy parent saying their child had returned home “exhilarated, exhausted and enthusiastic to go for Gold”. Thank you Ritchie, you make it all look so easy, when I know from experience it certainly isn’t.

  3. Great big thanks you to Badger Adventures, for organising the Open Gold Expedition, and allowing our daughter to join the expedition at short notice… Very accommodating. Thanks you.

  4. Badger Adventures have run our Gold DofE expeditions for the past five years, and we continue to be impressed with the service they offer. As school co-ordinator, Ritchie and his team are always on the end of the phone to help answer any questions or solve any problems along the way. They have always been able to accommodate our large cohort sizes, even through creating another expedition area to prevent too many groups walking the same routes. Their instructors are dedicated to providing excellent training to our pupils in the field and instill the highest of standards so that pupils learn to be self-sufficient and safe in the mountains, whilst enjoying the challenges of their Expedition section. Outsourcing to such an established company not only makes my job much easier but offers our pupils a quality service along the way. I cannot recommend Badger Adventures highly enough.
