DofE Gold Residential Week

To complete the Residential section of your Gold DofE Award, you will need to spend 5 days and 4 nights away from home on a shared activity with people that you don’t already know.  As a DofE Approved Activity Provider for Residentials, we are able to provide an unforgettable Gold DofE Residential experience at our outdoor centre, Cairngorms Adventure Centre in Newtonmore. 

This is an exciting and fulfilling experience.  It may be that you want to build on a talent you’ve developed in another section of your award, or to try something completely new such as learning to ski and snowboard.  Or, why not join us for a multi activity week which includes a selection of fantastic outdoor adventure activities, such as white water rafting, rock climbing and canyoning?

Self-catered accommodation is provided in shared dorm rooms.  There is a supermarket only a short walk (five minutes) from the centre, where provisions can be picked up for the week.  The centre has a drying room so any wet kit and clothing can be dried overnight, ready for another day of adventure!  Arrival at Cairngorms Adventure Centre is by 12:00 on the first day of the residential.

Take a look at the kit list here.
