For Scouts looking for an introduction to climbing: learn basic climbing skills with instruction from the centre's climbing guides. This workshop is run at the Centre’s Ueschinenhütte in the Ueschinen Valley and is aimed at beginners. You will hike up to the hut at 14:00 (about 3 hours hike) and spend the night there, learning about equipment and techniques. The following day you will be taken to various climbing areas before ending the day on a 15 metre climb. You will then hike back to the Centre arriving back around 17:30. When you return your guides will present you with a cloth rock climbing badge.
Th price includes the overnight stay in the hut. You can choose to either carry your own food to cook at the hut or order one of our hut food packages. For more information on hut food, please see here. Remember that you will need to cook for your activity guide!
The hut has cooking utensils and crockery as well as mattresses and blankets.
One of the main themes of our Programme the environment is important to all Scouts. We have Guided and Self-Guided Programme as well as the Eco Adventure Room and environmental information around the Centre and Campsite.
