Wild camping experience - Saturday 11th September, 2021
Always wanted to have a go at wild camping but never plucked up the courage? Been put off by all the equipment you need? If so, why not join us on a one night wild camp, either in Snowdonia or the Lake District!
Between us, we will agree on location prior to the event. On the day, you will be met by the event leader (likely to be Jo) at the agreed meeting point at 3pm in the afternoon. After sorting out our packs, agreeing the route and reviewing the weather forecast, we will head off on our walk through the fells to our makeshift home for the night! Once we have set up camp, we will head to the nearest summit in time for sunset. The next day, after breakfast, we will pack up our gear and head back to the civilisation via a few more summits.
You will need to be sufficiently fit to carry approximately 7kg for 3 hours on an incline. The route and distance from the start to our camp will be planned taking into account the weight on your back, fitness and previous hill walking experience.
