We’re back for our second district expedition. Once again we’re heading back to the Lake District for a week of walking, exploring and activities. It’s a great chance to learn some skills for life and discover your limits.

Saturday 26th October – Saturday 2nd November 2019. October half term.

Open to Scouts and Explorers from the New Forest North district.


As last time, we’re taking over Scout Adventures Great Tower in the Lake District. On the banks of Lake Windemere, one of the biggest and best known of the lakes, it’s a stunning place. We’ll be using Cartmel Lodge and Windemere Chalet with all the facilities you’d expect.

The cost:

The expedition costs £225 per person.

This includes transport to and from the Lake District, indoor accommodation at Great Tower, food for the event and costs for the main activities on the event including the caving.

Badge links:

This expedition is all about adventure and about trying something new. This trip will allow many to stand on their first mountain, to be trained in life-saving skills and to start a new hobby. Truly skills for life. It’s not just walking either. We’ll be taking part in lots of extra activities through the trip such a caving.

You’ll also be able to work towards your Hillwalker activity badge (click here for Scouts badge and here for Explorer Scouts badge) as well as getting more Hikes and Nights away. Plus it’s a chance for Scouts to complete their Expedition challenge award.
