Lake District Activity Week 2024 - day events only
18 people attending
32 places left
For those arranging their own accommodation, rather than camping in the group field with OutdoorLads.
This page is for those attending the day events only - if you have booked your own accommodation, either elsewhere or in a campervan or motorhome directly with the campsite. You will not be able to attend the day events if you are not registered on this page, for insurance reasons.
If you have booked to camp with us on the camping event page, you DO NOT need to also book on this page.
This is an amazing location surrounded by some of the most famous mountains in the Lake District great for mountaineering, climbing, & mountain biking.
Activities at the event will be varied and will depend on the leaders attending, their skill set & weather. Leaders will write their events on a whiteboard during the week, usually the evening before so you'll be able to see meeting times, location and type of event that way (example in the pictures). Leaders will decide from day to day and this laid-back approach isn't always a match for members who like to have their week super planned out.
Climbers and mountain bikers will run events which coincide with this event and list via sign up pages due to the experience / kit needed to attend these events.
A Telegram group will be set up nearer the time to share information about the day events taking place over the weekend.

What to bring
Recommended Kit List
In addition to what you need for the daytime activities, some reminders for what you'll need for camping:
Hand sanitiser and a face covering: whilst we are living with Covid-19, please bring your own to events to help keep everyone safe
Tent: make sure you know how to pitch it, even in bad weather or in the dark. Check you have all the poles, ropes and pegs. A 3 season tent is the minimum recommended level of protection.
Sleeping bag: one that provides adequate warmth, designed to go below the temperature that you expect
Sleeping mat: will keep you warmer and dryer
Waterproof bags: for spare, dry clothing
Food: search online for camping food that’s easy to cook and filling
Hot drinks: at least in cold weather
Cooking Equipment: check you have fuel and know how yours works
Eating equipment: mug, bowl or plate and cutlery
Washing up equipment: detergent, brush/scourer and tea towel
Wash kit: remember to include a towel, shower gel and shampoo
Torch: or easier still, a head torch
Food & drink
There are several pubs in the area, but it's a good idea to make sure you have emergencies supplies or are willing to drive.
There is a Co-op about a 5-10 min drive away and Ambleside is 20mins away.
The shop sells coffee and bacon butties etc as well as things to make a basic camp meal.
