Hillwalking Courses & Events

We’re here to help you improve your skills, get trained and be inspired.  Our experienced unit provides a range of courses to suit different needs. We can help you get started as a beginner or develop more advanced skills.

Courses cover all sorts of topics, conditions and settings with both practical experience and theory. Whether you’re learning the basics, brushing up on your skills, preparing for assessment or simply wanting to experience something new with qualified leaders, we have something for you. But, of course, our main aim is to inspire and equip volunteers to be able to deliver and expand Scouting adventures to even more young people.

You might ask, ‘why are mountain activities so special?’ If you’ve ever experienced the power and beauty of the moors, hills or mountains, you’ll know they can take your breath away with their beauty. Wonder, imagination, achievement, exploration and escape – just some of the things that young people can learn in these magnificent settings. With the help of skilled leaders this can translate into confidence, resilience, teamwork, determination and leadership skills. Once they’ve got the taste for adventure, it becomes a mindset for life.
