Our young people over the years have been involved in a wide variety of Residentials: e.g. taking part in cross-community activities at Corrymeela Centre, Ballycastle; assisting with the disabled at the Share Centre in Co. Fermanagh; working in National Trust Acorn Camps; participating in international Scout and Guide Camps; acting as junior leaders in cross-community holidays for young people from troubled areas in Northern Ireland; and helping with the sick and disabled on a pilgrimage to Lourdes.
As with all aspects of DofE work, the Gold Residential section helps to open up our young people's minds to new experiences, ideas and visions and helps to broaden their outlook on life.
