Lake District Activity Week - 5 nights camping
39 people attending
1 place left
This is camping for the five nights of the Lakes Activity Week, arriving Tuesday and departing on Sunday. There is an option to just come for the weekend, and that event page is here.
This is an amazing location surrounded by some of the most famous mountains in the Lake District great for walking, climbing, & mountain biking. There is a tarn within walking distance and we have links with a local watersports centre around a 30min drive away.
Due to the type of event we won't be listing the majority of events before the event as we don't know the weather, leaders available or skill set of people available that day. Leaders will write their events on a whiteboard during the week so you'll be able to see meeting times, location and type of event that way (example in the pictures). Tried and tested and this method works; just means we can make the most of what's possible on the day.
You don't have to camp with us to take part; other options including hostel and a hostel on the same road are available, and full members are welcome to join us for the daytime events.

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 within walking distance but in 2021 they were really struggling, hopefully, things will be better in 2022 but 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 aswell as things to make a basic camp meal.
