Terrain 1 & 2 Hillwalking Permits

Training & Assessments 2020

Throughout 2020 the County Mountaineering Team are running a number of weekends aimed at training and assessing leaders who want to lead groups of young people in mountainous terrain and therefore require a Hillwalking Permit. Leaders without permits (experienced or not) who would like to work towards gaining them can view all the requirements on the Scouts website here.

The weekends listed are open to all members within GLN over 18 and no prior experience is necessary. We want as many people to get involved and out into the hills as possible!

Please get in touch with Chris Stevenson the GLN County Mountaineering Advisor for more information and to book your space on 07796 264 172 or hillwalking@gln-scouts.org.uk
