SUPERVISORY & ASSESSMENT SERVICES

If you need an a supervisor or assessor for your DofE expedition then CHMAS can help out. We have worked extensively throughout Denbighshire, Peak District, Shropshire & Wales for land based expeditions and the River Severn & the River Wye for canoe/kayak based expeditions.

We understand that the role of the supervisor is very important on a DofE expedition as they are responsible for the safety of the participants. Once we are happy about the overall competency of a group, we will undertake remote supervision so that the group experiences the excitement of completing an independent expedition. However, we will always remain close by when routes pass by 'high risk' areas but we always try to have minimum intervention in such cases.

If you need an assessor we have facilitated many successful expeditions by canoe, cycle, kayak and on foot for all level of the awards. If you would like CHMAS to do this for you then please get in touch.

Our standard day rate is £140 per member of staff plus travel expenses. We will always agree travel expenses at the time of booking so that you know what to expect to pay in advance.

EXPEDITION PACKAGES

CHMAS is also able to provide a bespoke expedition package for groups for all levels of the award for expeditions on foot or canoe. Please contact us to discuss your requirements so that we can give you a competitive price.
