Hillwalking Dartmoor Weekend, for Adult Scout Members

Between: 17th September 2021 - 19th September 2021 Location: Dartmoor National Park, Devon Sections: Scout Network, Adult Volunteer, Hill Walking

 

This trip is to Dartmoor National Park over the weekend of 17th – 19th September.

The hill walking weekends are friendly and social, and run by experienced and qualified Scouters, including members of the GLMW Duke of Edinburgh (DoE) scheme team.

New to hillwalking or looking to gain a permit, this weekend is designed to cater for all comers.

Dartmoor National Park is one of the last great wildernesses in the UK with an inspirational landscape of heather-clad moors and rugged tors. Ponies roam its craggy landscape, defined by forests, rivers, wetlands and tors (rock formations). Trails wind through valleys with Neolithic tombs, Bronze Age stone circles and abandoned medieval farmhouses.

Is this for me?

Absolutely!  All you need is a basic level of fitness and hiking boots.

This trip is ideal for newbies, those who may want a skills refresher, to learn something new, are a seasoned pro, or just want to experience a nice weekend with good company in the British hills.

For those who are keen to gain or practice map, compass and other skills. We offer training from basic to advanced, to enable you to gain the skills required for the UK hills, used more locally to your Scout hut, and towards gaining a hillwalking permit.  The weekend can also be used for testing your current skills, enabling you to build an experience of quality mountain days for your logbook.

Attendees from new leaders, young leaders (18+), the more experienced or committee members are all very welcome!
