Join us for a fun residential week and take part in conservation projects!
Isle of Arran, Scotland or Peak District National Park
Focus: Wildlife spotting, conservation projects, John Muir Award, exploring.
Duration: 6 days (Isle of Arran) or 5 days (Peak District)
As part of your residential, you will explore beautiful landscapes and your chosen location’s flora and fauna. You will also work with local rangers on current conservation projects, helping to conserve and protect local biodiversity. All of the activities we undertake form part of the John Muir Award, meaning you’ll also achieve a worthwhile certificate for your CV.
Residentials for all
All residentials run by Adventure Expeditions are designed to bring individuals together to have a great time – our aim is for you to leave with new friends, great memories and new skills.
We understand that joining as an individual may be daunting but you are guaranteed a warm welcome by our team. Previous residential groups have made friends for life and met up independently afterwards for adventures together.
Our residentials are open to any young person aged 16 to 25. If you are undertaking the Gold DofE Award, your residential will fulfil all the criteria for the Gold Residential section but completing DofE is not a requirement to join us.
John Muir Award
If you join us for this residential, you will also complete the John Muir Discovery Award.
What is it? A national environmental award scheme encouraging people of all backgrounds to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places. Each award has four challenges to complete:
Discover a wild place;
Share your experience.
Food is included for you throughout the programme. We’ll take turns cooking in small teams each evening. Your instructors will be on hand with recipe cards, so don’t worry if you’ve never cooked before. We’ll provide ingredients for breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and plenty of snacks. All dietary needs and preferences can be catered for – please ensure that you let us know in advance and we’ll make sure we’re well stocked.
