Base Camp this year is geared towards people with limited experience in the great Outdoors. We're about learning through doing and no prior outdoor experience is required!

Do you want to learn how to set up camp, read a map, use a compass or cook your own camp food?? Then Base Camp is the place for you!

On Monday there's an offsite hike to put some of what you learn into practice!

Base Camp is a self catered camp. Some equipment will need to be provided by either personally yourself or your Home Company. An info pack will be sent out to registrants outlining food suggestions and what equipment will be required.
