DofE Gold Residential

DofE Gold Residential Week

This involves spending 5 days and 5 nights away from home on a shared activity with people you’ve never met before. Active can provide this residential experience at it’s Cairngorms Adventure 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.

Arrival at Craigower Lodge, Newtonmore the night before (Sunday) the residential starts. Shared dorm accommodation with self-catering.  The lodge has free wi-fi, large lounges to relax in, large kitchen to cook in and a client drying room to dry off your wet kit – as you will get wet!
