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.

Event director, Clare Symond’s said “The weekend was a great success with all members of the event challenging themselves in the mountains and enjoying the stunning scenery”

Daniel’s first time with HSX summited Hevelllyn, climbed HVS and completed a grade 2 scramble was heard to say it was

“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.

Easter Sunday saw groups going climbing in the Borrowdale Valley, scrambling on Black Cove crags and the classic round walk of the Kentmere ring.

The weekend was supported by our cook team and logistics team who enjoyed the weather visiting castles, nature reserves and local tea shops!

Another successful weekend in the Lake District and we’re all looking forward to our next adventure.
