WRG welcomes participants completing the residential aspect of their D of E Award and we are an Approved Activity Provider through the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Our Canal Camps are a great experience for anyone who loves being outdoors and enjoys meeting people!
Read our Guidance for DofE volunteers.
Each Canal Camp usually runs for seven days, each volunteer is asked to contribute £70 for the week towards the cost of their accommodation and the three meals a day that are provided. Most accommodation, which is best described as basic, is in sports centres, schools or village halls.
Anyone is welcome to volunteer for a Canal Camp; the only restriction is that they must be over 18 and under 70 years of age. All volunteers participating in the Award are asked to attend the Camp for the full seven days. No previous skills or experience are required.
Please note we do not accept bookings from groups of more than 2 DofE volunteers who know each other. If a group books on one of you may be asked to attend another camp.
