Join Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre, a leading AAP for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, for the expedition element of your programme. 


With full support from our friendly and experienced team, we will work with you to facilitate a tailor made journey to suite all young people. 

We are based in Leicester, in the East Midlands on the banks of the River Soar. But we can also operate in any part of the UK, appropriate to Bronze, Silver and Gold Expedition levels. LOPC can bring the adventure to you...

We are dedicated to providing the best possible experiences and support for you and your DofE teams.

Young people progress through three levels within the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Taking part in the scheme builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre is an Approved Activity Provider (AAP). The AAP Licence is a quality standard which shows that our organisation's programme has been proven to meet the requirements of the DofE Expedition and Residential sections.
