Gold Award Residential Opportunities

Trekkers Camp are able to offer you the opportunity of completing this section of your award with the approval of your unit leader.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme specifies the following:

"For your Residential section you need to undertake a shared activity or specific course with people you don’t know, in a residential setting away from home and in an unfamiliar environment. Evenings are often as much a part of the experience as daytime activities. This section offers a high degree of flexibility but it must be done with an organised group, registered charity or Approved Activity Provider. You must join it individually and not with an existing group of friends or as part of a school or youth group trip. You will be staying away – anything from an activity centre or camp to a boat or barge – but you cannot stay with friends or relatives. There are no age restrictions on who you can do your residential activity with, for example, a conservation project has volunteers of all ages on it – you may even be the only person under 25 or doing your DofE. Your activity can be anything that provides you with an opportunity for broadening your interests and experiences. It is ideal for trying something new or it can be related to existing interests or activities followed in other sections of your DofE programme."

TREKKERS CAMP meets all these requirements, however, due to the nature of our camp, all we ask is that you undertake a full weeks commitment from Saturday to Saturday (7 nights). This ensures that you gain the most from your experiences with us and that the disabled participants receive a continuous flow of care. The care of our campers can become disjointed due to either the late arrival or early departure of their helpers.

My first experience of Woodlarks was Trekkers camp. Whilst madness and mayhem seemed to prevail it was a really rewarding experience. The best part was seeing camper’s faces when they tried something they never thought would be possible. It was my first real experience of working with disabled people and has really changed my perspectives. I have since been back 3 times and intend to keep coming for years!

I have really enjoyed my time at Trekkers Camp. Everyone has been really friendly and supportive, and I’ve tried lots of new activities. The whole atmosphere is very friendly and I’ve made lots of good friends. I’d really recommend it to anyone. I hope to come back next year.

The atmosphere on camp was always one of jokes and liveliness. I enjoyed having a camper to help because it prevented me from feeling like a ‘newbie’ and I was always busy. My personal skills have been challenged and developed. Any hard times were short lived due to all the support from more experienced helpers. Overall camp was an extremely positive and rewarding experience
I had a fantastic week and Trekkers was definitely the best option for my D of E Residential. It was a real life experience that has given me the opportunity to meet people and gain skills that couldn’t be provided anywhere else. Awesome! and would like to come back in the future.
