To achieve your Gold Award, you need to complete an extra section – the Residential. This involves spending 5 days and 4 nights away from home on a shared activity with people you’ve never met before. It is a chance for the young person to step outside their comfort zone, gain new skills for life, enjoy new experiences and have fun. There is a near limitless range of opportunities and fantastic experiences that can be had on a residential.

“Before I went on my residential, I was told by a few people that it would be a life-changing experience. At the time I didn’t believe them, but now I have returned, my perspectives on everyday life have been changed. Our experiences especially allowed me to grow as a person, gaining confidence and experiencing new sensations that very few people ever get to experience.”
