Our annual Easter Walking and Activity Week to Castleton in the Derbyshire Peak District will take place during the first week of the Easter holidays from Saturday 1 – 8 April, open to all Scouts in Renown and Solebay Troops.

We have a varied programme including hill walking, swimming and other activities such as cycling and low-level climbing, as well as the opportunity to head into the local village and activities & games in the centre. We have exclusive use of the Rotary Centre in Castleton, with several buildings including a purpose-build dormitory block with bunk bed accommodation in rooms of four and central heating.

Walking groups are based on age and experience, and are led by an experienced leader or instructor. For the older Scouts there will be the opportunity (weather permitting) to complete a two-day expedition challenge, as part of the Chief Scout’s Award, an experience that will leave some great memories.


The week costs £250, which includes all transport, activities, accommodation, and food and represents excellent value for money for a full week away. Numbers are limited to 36 Sea Scouts and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

A £50 deposit is required on booking, with the balance by 10 March.

How to book

Please book at https://bookwhen.com/3rdcb-activities/e/ev-shk1-20230401000000 and pay the deposit to secure your child’s place. Invoices for the balance payment (if not paid when booking) will be sent out nearer the time through the Parent Portal.


Walking boots (not DM’s) and decent waterproofs are essential for this trip, and the Group has a number of good quality waterproofs and rucksacks that can be hired. There is a small hire charge of £5 per item to cover wear & tear and to help cover the cost of cleaning and replacing them. These borrowed items will be collected at the end of the week before we return home.

Pre-Trip Meeting

We hold a pre-trip meeting for parents and those going on the trip at The Den on Tuesday 14th March at 7.30pm, All those attending the trip should attend. Group equipment will be available to hire on this evening.
