Duke of Edinburgh Award
Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
Greenacres is delighted to welcome groups of students from local schools and colleges undertaking DofE award expeditions.
Group sizes can vary from just a handful to over 200 students. An area of our site is quite self-contained and well suited for this purpose. Our only request is that you avoid Bank Holiday weekends and the busy Glastonbury Festival period.
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 hold DBS enhanced clearance and are experienced in Safeguarding requirements, for children and vulnerable adults. We also have a comprehensive Health & Safety management system 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, The Mendip School, Venture Scouts, Bridge Learning Campus and others.
