The Residential - 22nd and 23rd August 2022

Start, Finish and overnight camp at Essex Outdoors, Well Lane, Danbury CM3 4AB. 

On completion of the three days you have the opportunity to complete an optional two day/one night camping experience in the great outdoors! During the two days you will have the chance to meet new people from all over Essex that have completed the same three days of activities as you have. This experience will take some of these activities to the next level, as you face the great outdoors!

If you want to take this further, we will register you on the DofE Award (free of charge) so that your expedition experience can be recorded. This also provides you with a fantastic opportunity to continue through the whole DofE bronze award beyond the summer. However, if this is something you have already achieved, you can still join in the fun.
