DofE Gold Residential

DofE Gold Residential Week

This involves spending 5 days and 4 nights away from home on a shared activity with people you’ve never met before. Active can provide this residential experience at it’s Craigower Lodge Outdoor Centre in Newtonmore.
It’s a big, exciting and very fulfilling experience. It may be that you want to build on a talent you’ve developed in another section or learn something completely new on an intensive course such as learning to Ski or Canoe or maybe try a multi activity week which includes White Water Rafting, Climbing, and Canyoning etc.
