Please note – we can only bring a small number of scouts on this event. This is based on attendance on recent troop hiking events. There will be another event the weekend after for everyone.
Location: Galtee Mountains (Event signposts from Rossadrehid Village)
Time: Sat 14:00 – Sun 14:00
Cost: €15 per Scout (includes event fee, a badge and food)
This is an overnight hike so a larger pack is required. All Scouts will be required to carry some of the team gear in addition to your own personal gear so please leave some room. All Scouts are required to bring the following:
- Hiking Boots
- Raingear (top & bottom)
- Hat & gloves
- Water bottle
- Packed lunch for saturday
- sleeping bag
- bivy bag
There will be a gear inspection at the start of the event and scouts without the proper gear will not be permitted to take part. Please read this guide on what to bring and how to pack it. No gear should be handing off your bag! No JEANS!!!!
Scouts must make their own way to the event – we suggest you carpool
