Exploring the Lakes through Adventure and Nature
This course is designed to be fun and to encourage young people back into nature. You will get the chance to try new skills and techniques; pond dip, identify edible plants in their natural habitat and build your own shelters. We will take to the water in canoes on Derwentwater or one of the local rivers, and explore mountains on foot. We’ll take time to find out about the local woodlands. There will also be a chance to try orienteering.
Orchestrated in partnership with the Lake District National Park, Blencathra offers a panoramic view of the Lake District’s serene lakes, wooded valleys, and England’s highest mountains.
The centre has 17 dormitory rooms and 26 twin or single rooms. 11 of these rooms are en-suite, and two are designed for disabled visitors. The standard price for FSC courses is for sole occupancy accommodation, but shared and non-resident options are usually available at a reduced rate.
Each family on our family holiday courses will get a room to themselves. Bed linen and towels are included and each room has tea/coffee making facilities.
