Gold DofE Residential at YHA Danywenallt

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This coming half term (Tuesday 31st May – Saturday 4th June 2016), YHA Danywenallt National Park Study Centre is running a Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Residential in conjunction with the Brecon Beacons National Park. The theme of the week is conservation, and in addition to fulfilling the criteria for their Residential, participants will earn the John Muir Award (JMA) at Discovery level by the end of the week. At this point we don’t know exactly what the conservation work will be, but the programme (shown below) will also involve team challenges, exploring the area around the hostel through geocaching, and creating a video to share their experiences (a criteria for the JMA). It’s a great week, learning to build independence, forging new friendships, and generally having a good time, all the while putting something back.

So you can see what sort of thing goes on, the video produced by our first DofE JMA week is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cdqk11x1yi2e1nb/DofE_with_JMA.mp4

Details are on the flier below. If you’re interested, either make contact through our contact page, email beaconsfieldstudies@yha.org.uk or phone the hostel on 01874 676677.
