Two Weekends GOLD Residential Multi Activity Course
Each weekend will run from 5pm on Friday through until 3pm on Sunday (DofE rules), so each participant will need to ensure that they are able to attend at these times before booking.
Having Gold Residentials that run over two weekends is a new DofE initiative that is under trial up until December 31st 2022.
Participants will meet other Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award candidates and experience a range of exciting, challenging and fun outdoor activities (eg archery, canoeing).
An important part of the course is that it provides the opportunity to meet new people in an unfamiliar environment. You will be living and working with others, building new relationships and working as part of a team. It is for this reason that the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award recommend that ‘only a small minority of those taking part should be known to the participant’. (ie participants should only know one other person on the same course).
