HSMT’s objective is to provide training and practical experience so that aspirant hillwalking and climbing leaders may safely and enjoyably lead and supervise mountaineering activities for the benefit of young (and not so young!) people.
If you want to gain a Scout Adventurous Activity Permit or just want some experience in hillwalking or climbing. HSMT run a variety of courses to suit everyone.
The experience weekends are open to all members of the Scout Association aged 18 and above with no previous experience in mountaineering up to those wanting to start taking an active role as a mountain leader. The programme for the weekend will be tailored to meet your needs and aspirations. The weekends will give you a general and practical introduction to the many aspects of mountain walking, providing you with the basic personal all round skills.
The Scout Adventurous Activity Permit training is designed for those with previous hill/mountain walking experience who wish to aim for their assessment in the future.
