We are a fully licensed expedition company and all of our policies and licenses are on the homepage of our website. We do our best to be inclusive, The minimum number of participants for a DofE expedition is 15. 

 We have extremely swift systems, some are an industry first. We ensure all campsites and expedition locations are confirmed by the first week of January for all schools. BXM require parent email addresses and final numbers by Christmas to ensure all expedition paperwork & medical consent forms can be sent to parents and completed electronically helping to ensure BXM are as paper free as possible to reduce our environmental impact. This also means DofE managers do not need to collect and scan in medical information, reducing workload.




The Venture Award


In 2016 BXM Expeditions, experts in DofE expeditions created an innovative and new programme for year 7 (level one) and year 8 students (level two) ; The Venture Award. This is a development award, similar to DofE to bridge the gap between year 6 residential programmes and The Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award. The award focuses on 3 key values, being a luminary, self-discipline and working independently. Participants receive a booklet to complete and attend a 24hr or 2 day expedition to focus on these key values while in the outdoors building and reflecting on the skills they have learned through completing their booklets. Students receive the National Navigation Award for completing these programs. We can manage a full year group.




DofE International


We currently are offering two stunning International Gold DofE locations. Working with International Mountain Leaders in Slovenia or Norway. Both trips again are fairly priced with incredible attention to detail.
