Our D of E Gold Adventure Residential courses focus on providing maximum enjoyment whilst learning and developing outdoor skills. Our highly qualified and experienced instructors are true enthusiasts, keen to pass on their skills and knowledge. On our adventure residential you will be surrounded by people of your own age and interests. In the evening, our staff organise a wide range of other events and activities including orienteering, activity workshops and team building experiences. So why not join us for a D of E Gold Residential course with more than a hint of adventure? The objective of the week is to build new skills, meet new people, have fun, strengthen team work and build resilience. By completing this course you will meet the requirements of the residential section of your Gold Award. You may also gain a nationally recognised qualification in your chosen activity.
