So I’ve completed my Gold DofE for which I did a 5 day expedition to Norway (we went hiking), could I use this as my CAS project?
It took us 2months to plan the whole trip and it was done collaboratively, the Active part is the 5 day hike. We were supervised by school staff, except for the hike (they met us at the start and collected us at the end).
Does this work?

My cas advisor told me that the project needed to show my leadership so maybe play up your leadership of the group when you write about it

I think you have the action and the creativity part of the CAS project done, only thing missing is service, did you raise any money of any kind?

But it’s not necessary to have all the parts (activity, creativity and service) in every cas activity. It’s perfectly alright to include that.

And a CAS project only needs to have 2 of the parts in it. No need to include service. Just play up your role in initiating and leading the activity if you can. Make it seem a bit more line it was your idea to do it.

Dule of Edinburgh? Just dont mention anything about CAS since they’ll reject it if they know you’re also doing it for CAS. Same thing vice versa.
