Cheshire Hike is a challenging yet rewarding, two day expedition completed in parties of 2- 5 people, open to Scouts, Guides, Explorers and Senior Section.
We have three age categories, based on how old you are on the Saturday of Cheshire Hike:
Cheshire Hike is one of the premiere activities in our calendar and the revamped hike for 2022 builds on its rich heritage and adopts some new innovations.
At its core remains the challenge for Scouts, Explorers and Guides to hike through the Cheshire countryside, navigating their way using traditional Scouting & Guiding skills. It requires preparation, organisation, teamwork, resilience and personal determination to get to the end. This is an event that truly delivers ‘Skills for Life’ and every participant should be very proud to say they have taken part. For some it’s the pride in saying they have taken part in multiple Cheshire Hikes!
To the Leaders who support their young people with training and encouragement, thank you, because without you, it would be impossible to give this many young people a challenge or adventure of this magnitude.
To the volunteers who help us organise and run the hike, you are all amazing, because without you, Cheshire Hike simply would not happen.
Cheshire Hike 2022 will be a special event so enjoy the experience, and to all participants’ good luck, enjoy the weekend and be proud because you are Scouts & Guides doing something very special.
