Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
Greenacres frequently hosts groups of students from local schools and other organisations undertaking their D of E expedition. Group sizes can vary from just a hanful to over 200 students! An area of our site is quite self-contained and well suited for this purpose. Outside of Bank Holiday weekends and the busy Glastonbury Festival period, D of E expedition groups are always welcome.
An extensive network of footpaths leads to/from the site, through idyllic countryside with amazing wildlife. Our "in the middle of nowhere" feel adds to the adventure, but we are close enough to amenities should things go wrong.
All Greenacres staff are DBS/CRB cleared and experienced in Safeguarding requirements. We also have comprehensive Health & Safety management policies in place.
Group camping equipment is available for hire at reasonable rates, including Event Shelters, Tables, Firepits and BBQ's, Water boilers, Electric leads, etc.
Organisations choosing Greenacres recently for their expeditions include Norton Hill School, Bruton School for Girls, The Blue School, Wells, Sexeys School, Kings of Wessex School, Venture Scouts and others.
