For the Residential Project section you’ll need a sense of adventure and discovery as you go on a team journey, expedition or exploration.
It will involve you undertaking a shared activity or specific course with people you don’t know that will build on a talent you’ve developed in another section, learn something completely new on an intensive course or do something to help others. It’s a big, exciting and very fulfilling experience that will leave you with a great sense of achievement.
There are many different opportunities for completing a Residential Project. Some suitable categories and examples are listed below. It is worth re-emphasising that the activity must be purposeful and not considered as a holiday.
