Indie Outdoors aims to provide a ‘real’ outdoor experience for young people and adults using experienced and well qualified staff. We believe that outdoor activities can be a transformative and empowering experience at all ages but that this is best achieved through a mutual respect and understanding between instructor and participant. Participants should not be forced, coerced or led by the hand more than is strictly necessary for safety reasons and they should not see the instructor as some kind of superior and untouchable entity but rather as someone who can introduce the participant to new experiences and abilities within themselves.
Indie Outdoors has been providing DofE expeditions for ten years and has been an AAP since 2010. Indie is an International Mountain Leader (IML) and Theo is a Mountain Leader (ML). They are both keen walkers in the UK and Europe. They have extensive experience of the Pyrenees and the Alps and organise Gold DofE expeditions in both mountain ranges.
Theo has been running DofE Expeditions for 10 years and have been an AAP since 2010. He passionately believe in the ethos of the DofE Award and strive to provide the best service they can to enable young people to get the best out of their expedition.
