For people who would like to wild camp in the UK whilst looking after themselves and their environment (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult).

 

An overnight experience, starting around 12:30pm (afternoon) with a little preparation and information followed by a walk into a wild location for an overnight wild camp (camp, tarp or bivouac). The location for this event will be decided according to the weather forecast and could be relatively remote so you will require transport.

 

This event is suitable for anyone of average fitness who is able to carry a loaded rucksack into the hills of the Lake District. We prefer that participants bring their own equipment (we will provide a kit list) but we can provide items of camping equipment if required.

 

During the event we'll explore many aspects of wild camping, and especially those of interest to each participant. We'll also run a series of short discussion and practical sessions including:

  • Introduction and wild camp etiquette;
  • Kit check; a brief look at equipment;
  • Pack and carry: What to take, what to leave;
  • Preparing to leave no trace;
  • Responsible environmental conservation;
  • Personal health and safety;
  • Simple survival, safety and comfort factors;
  • Identifying a suitable camp location;
  • Pitching tents and tarps (including storm rigging);
  • Protecting yourself from the weather;
  • Stoves, fuels and safety protocols;
  • Camp cooking; light, high energy foods plus special treats;
  • Fire protocols and regulations in the Lake District;
  • Reducing heat loss during the night;
  • Striking camp;
  • Leaving no trace.
