You are warmly welcome to join us at our Woodland Education site Brickyard Wood Derbyshire to complete the Residential section of your Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.



This five day, four night residential programme is packed full of new and exciting experiences exploring the world of Bushcraft & Survival Skills. You will learn a wide range of fire lighting techniques, shelter building to sleep in, woodland tool use, wild food exploration, woodland furniture making, tracking skills and much much more.



We are very excited about what this week will offer you through experiences of vital survival technical skills through to fostering new lifelong friendships. This really is a voyage of self discovery and a wonderful way to conclude the D of E journey.




We are confident this week of adventure will fulfil all the guiding principles without fail and our Bushcraft Practitioners through their extensive experience of working with young people will steer the week to help facilitate a very memorable experience for all. We can’t wait to meet you!
