This Easter 28 Scouts, Explorers, Network and Scout Active Support members return to Great Tower for an amazing weekend of adventure in the Lake District.
Arriving in the Lakes on Thursday the team members enjoyed 3 full days of high adventure splitting into different groups each day to experience different activities and areas of the Lake District.

“His best Scout camp ever”
Good Friday saw three groups go out to Blencathra ascending via Sharp edge, Hevelllyn, leg 2 of the Bob Graham Round and some multi pitch climbing on Dow Crag!
Saturday saw the second day of breathtaking weather with climbing and walking in the Langdales.
