An exciting new initiative between S Yorks Scouts, the Association of Mountaineering Instructors and AlpKit, providing training in the Peak for Scout Leaders.
Although the training will broadly follow the Hill and Moorland Leader Award, as provided by Mountain Training, it is ideal for Scout Leaders wanting a permit for Terrain 1 Summer Leadership.
We will aim to have fun and learn along the way. We meet Saturday 16th Nov at 12.30pm at the Fox House pub near Burbage. We will finish (in the dark) by 8pm, with some night navigation. Sunday 17th starts in the same place, at the more normal time of 9.30am, finishing by 4.30ish.
In that time, we will aim to look at all of the following topics, not necessarily in this order:
Navigation, Hazards and Emergency Procedures, Equipment, Group management, Access and Conservation, Weather
Waterproof Jacket and Trousers
Hat, gloves, warm layers
Walking boots and socks
Flask and hill food
First aid kit
Compass – silva expedition type 4 is ideal
Maps of the area at 1:50000 and 1:25000 (if you have them: if not, I can supply)
All my contact details are on other parts of the website - do feel free to get in touch if you have questions.
See you soon,
