Mountain Activities

Hill Walking

The County runs a number of hill walking events throughout the year to support leaders and encourage them to get their boots on and head for the hills.

Leaders’ Walking Days

These take place once a month between  November and April to enable volunteers to gain more experience and improve their skills.

Each day is run by an experienced Mountain Leader and is open to any volunteer within Scouting, whatever their experience level.

Upcoming walks are advertised on the County Calendar and the Events page on the County website.

For further information contact Mark Graham.

County Walking Weekend

In May (usually the 2nd weekend) the County holds a Leaders’ Walking Weekend.

You can attend this for pleasure, to gain experience or to be assessed for a Hill Walking Permit (Adventurous Activity Permit).

The weekend is again open to all adults in Scouting, whatever your experience level.

Upcoming weekends are advertised on the County Calendar and the Events page on the County website.

For further information contact Mark Graham.

Scout and Explorer Walking Weekend

This usually takes place on the first weekend in October and is advertised on the County Calendar and the Events page on the County website.

For further information contact Mark Graham.

Climbing

The County runs a number of climbing events over the year to support volunteers and encourage them to climb on manmade walls or on natural rock crags. Most of these events are run by the County’s Climbing Assessors who provide enjoyable, but challenging activities.

For further information please contact the County Manager of the Activity Permit Scheme (MAPS)

Also see Kinver Training Courses for details of leader training courses for manmade walls and towers.
