The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Five Days of Adventure Activities in Scotland For your DofE Gold Residential
The DofE Gold Residential week in Scotland 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.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Residential is 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.
We ask people to arrive at the Cairngorms Adventure Centre, Newtonmore the night before (Sunday) the DofE Gold 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!
The multi activity DofE Gold Residential (April – October) includes 5 days of fun outdoor activities! A mixture of land, water and rock based sports. All equipment needed for the activities is provided by us. The snowsports residential includes the use of snowsports equipment but we do ask you to provide own clothing.
If you have not already, then take a look at the residential page on the official DofE website.
Adventure Multi Activity Residential is £345.00. The Snowsports Gold DofE Residential is £345.00 plus the cost per day for lift passes.
