Lake District Activity Week - 5 nights camping
20 people attending
20 places left
This event is made available to members with a confirmed place on at least one of the Lakes Activity Days events - please do not book this camping event otherwise.
If you're going to the Lakes Activity Week, you can now choose to camp with OutdoorLads on the group field in a local campsite as well!
We have two options available - this page offers five nights of camping (arrive Tuesday, leave Sunday) but if you're only coming for the weekend, there is also a two night option which you can view here.
(Unfortunately those are the only two options we're able to offer, as the site is expecting to be extremely popular this Summer and strict control over numbers is necessary.)
This well-equipped site boasts two newly upgraded toilet and shower blocks, washing-up areas, a laundry and drying room. You'll need to provide all your own food and entertainment of course, this is simply offering you a place to camp alongside fellow OutdoorLads on the group field.
We'll need some information about the number of tents our group will have and the size of those tents, to assist the site with their planning as it's a popular site at a busy time of year, in a year when everyone wants to go camping! Please complete this very short survey once you've booked your place.
You are of course free to book your own accommodation elsewhere in the local area if you wish.
