It is both challenging and fun, and for many young people, taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme can be a life-changing experience.
And from this year, North Walsham High School is expanding its DofE programme so that almost all of its Year 9 student will get to take part.
And the school has received a boost from North Walsham and District Round Table, which has donated £1,330 so that they can buy tents and other equipment for DofE camping expeditions.
Adam Pittman, teacher and the school's DofE deputy leader, said: 'We want to say thank you to the North Walsham Round Table for their generosity.
'This is going to be a massive help. The kids are all really excited about starting their Duke of Edinburgh's.'
