2021's BIG Event at this venue was such a success, we had to come back!
There are three accommodation options for this event:
This weekend is a celebration of all things outdoors. This outdoor centre is perfectly located in the heart of the Peak District for walking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing, and we'll even have use of the on-site high-ropes course!
In terms of evening entertainment, this event will be a relaxed affair. We'll have a bar of course, but rather than a late night disco, it's more about having a space to chat, catch up with old and new friends, and maybe even play board games!
OutdoorLads will have exclusive use of the site, designed for large groups like ours. You can be sure that everybody you meet over the weekend will be an OutdoorLad or a member of staff at the venue.
You can do as much or as little as you desire over the weekend (but we do advise you to get stuck in!).
We're planning a wide variety of events over the weekend. The event is ideally located for walks, cycling, trad/sport climbing, water sports, and the site even has it's own high-ropes course! Of course you may just choose a less vigorous option and go and visit a local National Trust property.
The events below will go live on the website on Wednesday 29 June and will be bookable from 18.00 on Sunday 3 July, to give everyone a chance to see what events are on offer.

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who has recently tested positive for Covid-19, is asked not to attend.
What to bring
In addition to the kit lists relevant to any activities you may be doing, please bring:
Towel and wash kit
Clothes for wearing about the venue - OutdoorLads branded t-shirts and other apparel are most welcome
Pillow from home - its a nice home comfort to have
Fancy Dress costume - if partaking in a bit of dressing up. Entirely optional of course.
Don't worry - all bedding is provided (in the hostel). So no need to bring that.
Food & drink
If you plan to cook for yourself, those staying in the hostel are welcome to use the self-catering kitchen, but you must clean up after yourselves. If camp cooking outdoors, please ensure stoves and BBQs are kept raised off the grass so as not to damage it. Campfires are not permitted at this campsite.
If you don't fancy the hassle of catering, you can book some or all of your meals for the weekend with us via links in the main event description above.
Tea and coffee will be available free of charge all weekend on a self service basis - please bring your own mug!
The bar will be open throughout the day for your use.
