  • Broadening experience through involvement with others
  • Experiencing an unfamiliar environment
  • Experiencing a sense of shared purpose with people who are not usual companions
  • Working towards a common goal
  • Developing the attributes of determination and perseverance


  • Be undertaking the Gold Award and choose the experience themselves
  • Undertake shared purposeful activity which provides opportunities for broadening interests and experience.
  • Reside away from your usual place of residence for a total period of no less than five days and four nights.
  • Be in the company of others who are, in the majority, not your usual companions.
  • Undergo briefing and/or training (if required) prior to or during the residential period so that they are able to contribute fully to the activity and derive full benefit from the experience.
  • Not gain materially from the experience (although assistance may be sought for transport, accommodation and meals).
