This Gold Residential exceeded my expectations! I have had the most amazing week and have made some lifelong friends! I think every young person should experience a bushcraft survival week with Rural Pride. Matt Jackson was extremely welcoming and approachable at all times and helped to make this a very special week.

DofE Gold Residential

Rural Pride Outdoor Learning Centre offers a unique opportunity for your Gold Residential at our exciting woodland site in the heart of Derbyshire. Brickyard Wood is a 9 acre woodland developed to create a sense of isolation that helps you explore your natural survival instincts with the added extra of expert tuition in survival and bushcraft skills.

Imagine you have become stranded on this wooded deserted island with your fellow survivors and see how quickly you can adapt to life in the wild and build lifelong friendships. You will need to make shelter quickly to protect you from the elements and of course build a fire for cooking.  The week costs £300 fully inclusive of all food and activities, a £100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place.
