As part of our Centenary celebrations, the team at Great Tower have put together an unrivalled adventure package for Cubs across the country. Where else could you take your Cubs to take part in Ghyll Scrambling, Kayaking on Windermere, Rock climbing, High Ropes adventures and summit a Mountain in 48 hours?

What should I expect?

Arrive on Friday evening and settle into your accommodation before meeting up with everyone else and heading out to conquer the High Ropes with your team for the weekend. Zip into a wet suit on Saturday to go Ghyll scrambling then navigate your way to the top of one of the Lake Districts peaks. Join together again for a spectacular campfire in the evening before getting a good night’s sleep ready for another full day of adventure on Sunday - learning to kayak on Windermere and rock climbing - on real rocks! The weekend finishes late on Sunday afternoon.

One free adult place per 10 children - additional adults are charged at £45. Please select the number of Cub & leader places you require.

Who can attend?

Cub Scouts – the first 100 to book will be guaranteed a place.
