County Leader Walking and Climbing Weekend

County Leader Walking and Climbing Weekend – May 5th to 7th 2017

Venue for 2017 is Carlisle Diocesan Youth Centre, St. John's-in-the-Vale, Keswick (link: )

Full details of this event will be sent out in the near future.  The main objective of the weekend is for Leaders to either

  • Be assessed for hill walking or on rock permits
  • Receive training to help them obtain walking or on rock permits
  • Log personal hill walking / climbing days

Additionally to this we are offering the chance for existing permit holders to bring their own groups of scouts / explorers for a weekend of hill walking in the Lake District.  The accommodation booked is split in to two separate building and the one building would be available for group usage.  There would be a maximum of 12 youth places available but any group taking this offer on must provide suitable permitted Leaders to cover their numbers.  This opportunity would really suit youth members who have some experience of this activity and would not be recommended to the novice.

Full details will be out soon via the County website at  link:
