6. My First Ascent of Snowdon - Bunkhouse Weekend

This weekend event is designed especially for those with less experience of hiking up mountains, or wishing climb their very first mountain. We'll be heading up Snowdon, taking the more popular and gentler paths, and at a pace to ensure we all get to the top and back again in one piece and have a great day out. Even if you've done Snowdon or other mountains before but want a great weekend away and a more relaxed walk up to the peak, you'll have a great trip too.

8. Surrey Hills Easter Camp 2019

Based in the picturesque Surrey Hills this Easter camp will be relaxed and informal, just like the working farm where we will be staying. As this is a relaxed event, the weekend's itinerary is up to you. However to give an idea, we will most likely gather round the camp fire on Friday night to catch up with old friends and get to know new acquaintances. There will be a group walk of approx. 8-10 miles setting off on Saturday morning (precise time to be decided the evening before) to explore the beautiful scenery of the Surrey Hills. A shorter walk will also be available on the Sunday too!
