The Keswick weekend is a hillwalking training/assessment weekend provided by the county hill walking team for any adult member who would like to obtain a permit to take young people in to mountainous areas.

The permit scheme offered by Central Yorkshire Scouts is delivered via modules (module 1-5) and during the weekend any participants have the opportunity to gain training and/or be assessed for the following modules:  Module 3 = Micro Navigation and Module 5 = Security on Steep Ground.

Participants can attend for the full weekend or just one of the two days, depending on what modules you would like to acquire.   The day runs from 9.00am until 4.00pm approx., and are based a few miles outside of Keswick.


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
