Backpacking & Camping
We usually hold at least one meet a year, during the summer months where we go off on a multi-day expedition involving at least one night of wild camping or bivouacking out in the hills.
These meets are an excellent adventure; generally a good level of fitness is needed as you carry everything you’ll need on your back!
For the past few years these weekends have been run in the English Lake District and those attending have really enjoyed the experience an overnight expedition brings. These weekends would be ideal for anyone looking at gaining experience towards attaining the MLTB Mountain Leader (Summer) certificate, which involves an element of overnight/wild camping.
The Club cannot provide expetion equipment such asrucksacks, light-weight tents and stoves. It is the responsibility of individuals or the BB Companies to provide the necessary backpacking equipment.
