Join OutdoorLads for a return trip into the Upper Warfedale valley, camping at the foot of Great Whernside. Our location provides stunning views across the valley and opportunity for varied activities, including walking, cycling and climbing. The main event on the Saturday will be a hike up Great Whernside, which peaks at about 700m, and provides wonderful views across the landscape, and for the climber’s we’ll be heading to Great Wolfrey; the ultimate in moorland crags with good rock, fine views and a great mix of climbing routes and bouldering problems (Click here for the Climbing Event Page). There will also be an easier low-level walk (subject to leader availability). On the Sunday there will most likely be a shorter walk on offer which may end in a pub lunch.

Our campsite is close to Kettlewell Village which has a range of facilities including three great pubs and an award-winning tearoom. There's even a traditional village store and an outdoor shop in case you forget that essential item. The campsite itself will be for the exclusive use of OutdoorLads, and has its own dedicated facilities, including free high quality hot showers, picnic benches and fire pit. The campsite allows BBQ'S but campfires that are ground based are not permitted. Fires raised off the floor and with protection for the grass underneath are permitted. There are a limited number of electric-hookups available which will be allocated on a first-come first served basis, if you want one of these then message the leader following event registration.

This is a compact site and we would encourage you to bring a smaller rather than a big party tent! You will not be able to park your car immediately next to your tent, but there should be room on site if people try to car share as far as possible.

Caravans, Campervans, Motorhomes: This event is suitable for tents only. 

Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome provided they are kept on a lead at all times on the site and cleaned up after.
