This Adventures in Snowdonia five-day residential is for young people aged 16–18 that have a love of the outdoors, the adventurous activities that it can offer and an interest in working to conserve it.

Throughout the week you will take part in a variety of activities to discover and explore the National Park and surrounding areas with like-minded peers.

Challenges might include climbing, gorge scrambling, mountain trekking, canoeing and an overnight camping expedition. A key aspect of the residential will be your conservation day, where you will conduct work to conserve an area within Snowdonia National Park.
