Snowdonia Mountain Walking Weekend for Scouts and Explorers

Two days walking in the beautiful Snowdonia mountains led by experienced terrain 2 permit holders. This is an opportunity for Scouts and Explorer Scouts to walk amongst the most iconic peaks in the National Park and, weather allowing, to climb to the tops. In past years we have walked the Carneddau, Glyders, Snowdon itself, as well as outlier peaks such as Moel Siabod.

Routes will be decided on the weekend and there will be different options depending on ability and of course the weather.

The weekend is pitched at those who have some hill walking experience and a medium to good level of fitness as we’ll be in the mountains all day. Most important is that everyone has all the kit on the list so we stay safe.

All attendees (if they choose) can practice their navigation, and walk leaders will be happy to help young people earn navigation and hill walking badges, as well as to coach anyone working towards hillwalking leader permits.

Accommodation is fully catered in the comfortable Old School Lodge in Deiniolen, near Llanberis.

Scouts will be accompanied by their own leaders and booking will be through them, as will transport to and from Snowdonia.

Leaders are invited to register their interest in taking Scouts/Explorer Scouts on the trip by emailing event organiser Mark Graham on  Mark will then send you a booking form and more details.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
