Scafell Pike 2019

Looking for a new challenge?

Join us on Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, for our annual Family Challenge Weekend on Sunday July 14th 2019. We’re looking for adventure loving children to climb Scafell Pike with their families for OSCAR’s PBTC. The challenge is suitable for children aged between 5 and 18 and we will have support on the walk via Raw Adventures, a professional mountain leadership company who have supported us on our previous family challenges.

Arrival for registration between 4 – 6pm on Saturday 13th ready to walk on Sunday 14th. The area around Scafell Pike where we will start from (Wasdale Head) is fairly remote and accommodation choices are limited. We have booked out accommodation at the following hotels. If you would like to book hotel rooms for the night before, or self catering apartments for the whole weekend, please indicate your choices on the form below. We require a £50 non refundable deposit for the accommodation booking with the balance due in June 2019 and will be in touch to confirm your accommodation booking asap.

All children who do the walk will be provided with a t-shirt to walk in and a medal and certificate on completion. We ask that all children who join us try and raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship money.
