    Hello

    Does anyone have any ideas for the residential?
    Ive looked at the DofE list of approved suppliers and things, but a lot of them are courses which are costing hundreds...

    Im looking for something as cheap as possible, preferably in the south-west...
    any suggestions?

    Is it possible for you to help with a Bronze or Silver expedition? What I'm doing and we only have to cover the cost of the campsites.

    Something where you volunteer will probably be the cheapest, so you only have to pay for food/accommodation, if even that, depending on the organisation. I helped run a Scout camp for mine.

    Dunno about the low cost thing but I did my residential with them last october and it was fantastic! Met some cool people too, one who is actually in my halls at uni come september (small world).
