District Cheshire Hike Practice 3

24th February 2018 - 25th February 2018

This is the first of three, ‘two day hikes’ open to all Scouts & Explorers in the District participating in the Cheshire Hike.
It’s a great opportunity to practice for Cheshire Hike and Participation can contribute to a number of badges. For younger participants Tents and Sleeping bags will be transported to the finish so participants can get used to walking a fair distance and practice navigating.
Please note there is a flat £20 to attend practice 3, 4 & 5 whether you attend all of them or just one of them. If you book onto all three at the same time a £40 discount will be applied to the basket. If you book on to just one weekend and then subsequently decide to come to another weekend hike the website will recognise this and not charge you for the other two weekends.
Start location and finish will be announced nearer the time.
