Awesome experience with awesome leaders!! Beautiful scenic places which I would never have been able to go to if I just went with my own family. The leaders are also very knowledgeable

I love doing my Duke Of Edinburgh camps with Escape Adventurous Journeys because we always go to stunning places to camp. On top of this the leaders are always very friendly and have a ton of knowledge which they share with us to help us become more confident in the outdoors. I've done my bronze, silver and gold camps with them and highly recommend them.
