Kent DofE is delighted to offer Gold DofE Participants the opportunity to undertake their Residential section with us working in partnership with the team at Hammerwood Scout Campsite between 6th and 10th April 2024.
During the residential we will be working with the team at Hammerwood to complete tasks which will include
:- Clearing Invasive Species from the sites Ancient Woodland
:- Clearing areas of the site to improve Camping Areas
:- Campsite & Building Improvements
:- Clearing Waterways
Hammerwood Scout Campsite is located on the Hammerwood Estate near East Grinstead, East Sussex. The site is largely woodland with a number of clearings where groups camp. The site is run entirely by volunteers.
Although we will be working at Hammerwood Scout, we will be camping at the nearby Adamswell Scout Campsite near Tunbridge Wells as the facilities at Hammerwood are limited with no showers etc.
Accommodation will be camping but we will have access to a building for food and drink breaks and in the evening.
This activity is open to all participants completing their Gold DofE award and participants must have enrolled at Gold level before attending the programme.
