This is a two day training event starting from Butarlyp Youth Hostel Grasmere, and partly on the fells including a high-level overnight camp. Participants will be guided and supported by a qualified and expert mountain leader. The course will cover best clothing and equipment, packing for an expedition, route choice and everything you need to know about camping out in the fells in the UK, including site choice, cooking a meal and camp safety and hygiene.
