Hillwalking weekends – 2016

Do you want to get away into the hills? Do you want to increase your confidence in leading scouts in the mountains? Do you want to get a hill walking permit to take your Explorers or Scouts on more exciting trips?

Whether you are new to the hills, or a veteran looking for permit renewal or an excuse to get out into the hills, our programme of hillwalking weekends offers something for you. Built around regular weekend trips to some of the best hill and mountain locations in the UK, the programme develops personal skills for leading safe and successful adventures in the wild. Assessments for those seeking or renewing Scouting hill walking permits are available on all our weekend trips. Regular weekend trips give the opportunity for everyone to train and acquire the skills they need to qualify.

There are five weekends arranged for this year:

11/12/13 March – Brecon Beacons

13/14/15 May – Snowdonia

17/18/19 June – Lake District

23/24/25 September – Yorkshire Dales
