Duke of Edinburgh Adventure Academy

Duke of Edinburgh Adventure Academy

Company of Adventurers, in partnership with The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, is proud to offer skill-building, backcountry expeditions to various locations in the Canadian Rockies.

- Ages 14+

- Mountain Travel
- Certified Guides

Our Summer and Winter Adventure Academy programs are tailored to satisfy Duke of Edinburgh-specific Bronze, Silver and Gold Award program requirements. Youth can, however, complete these expeditions and gain important wilderness survival skills without completing the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Our professional staff draws on years of teaching and guiding in the outdoors to make each program a great learning experience with memories that will last a lifetime.

We strive to provide the highest level of instruction and safety in many outdoor wilderness activities with a strong focus on environmental education and stewardship. A low guide to participant ratio promotes safety and enhances the quality of the experience.
