Come and spend Easter with OutdoorLads at Ennerdale in the Lake District.
This page is for the hostel option, but if you'd prefer the camping option, follow this link - Easter Ennerdale Camping
This idyllic Scout Campsite is next to the shore Ennerdale Water (great for a morning swim!) in a forested area with great facilities for both people attending for the hostel and campers. Ennerdale is also a dark sky area which means very little light pollution, in the past we’ve had some magical skies.
There will be a range of walks for different abilities with St Bee’s (start of the coast to coast) just a short drive away and from the campsite itself you can see some big named Lake District peaks including Great Gable, Pillar & Haystacks. There are more accessible (medium ability) walks which can be done from the campsite, aswell as a walk around the Ennerdale itself. Walks as ever will depend on the leaders attending.
I’m sure we can also have some fun activities away and have an Easter Egg hunt but with a twist!
In the evenings usually people stay around the pretty amazing campfire circle or there is access to the Chalet lounge (this will be limited for campers around dinner time and no access after 22:00).
This campsite is fairly remote with a pub around 20 minutes’ walk away and the closest shops around 15 minutes’ drive away. Mobile phone signal will depend on your carrier with some being good and some having nothing. There is no wifi in the building.
Dogs: Campsite users only - Dogs are permitted on site as long as they are well behaved, under control and any mess is cleared up. They are not permitted in the hostel.

The event cost includes breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, dinner on Saturday evening and tea/coffee throughout the weekend.
For Friday night you are asked to bring a contribution to the buffet which will be served between 7-8pm.
