District Cheshire Hike Practice 2

3rd February 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4th February 2018 @ 10:30 am

This is the second of  two, ‘day hikes’ open to all Scouts & Explorers in the District regardless of whether or not the intend to enter the Cheshire Hike.
After the hike we are offering an optional overnight ‘Cold Camp’, where participants can practice putting up their tent and cooking an evening meal..
It’s a great opportunity to practice for Cheshire Hike and Participation can contribute to a number of badges. Tents and Sleeping bags will be transported to the finish so participants can get used to walking a fair distance and practice navigating.
Start location and finish will be the Mersey Weaver District Scout Centre in Frodsham behind what used to be the NatWest Bank.
