Please note you have to attend both weekends in full

Would you be interested in doing an ERCA High Ropes (Traditional) instructor course?

How many times have you seen activities like Jacobs ladder, High all aboard or a Leap-of-Faith on a campsite and thought “That could be great fun for my lot! If only we could…”

This is a European-wide recognised qualification covering exactly these team-building activities which Scouting likes doing. As a formal qualification, it will be recognised by all centres, so you should be able to book their activity base without the cost of using one of their instructors. It’s also some great personal development for yourselves and fun to do!

This course is being run by Arrampica and is normally a solid 4day course. However to be Scouter friendly, I’ve arranged for this one to be split over 2 weekends and at a significant discount!

• Course details: The publicised details are shown here ERCA Traditional Ropes Course Instructor
• Dates: 8-9Feb and 29Feb-1Mar
• Venue: Green Park activity centre, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury. Overnight accommodation is available separately, on-site.
• Cost: Discounted from the publicised cost and depending on how many people we get. More people (up to their limit) = cheaper cost…
• Prior experience: Not much! You should have been on one of these activities in the past to know what they’re about, or ideally have some basic climbing experience to be able to belay someone.
• Fitness: You will be expected to fully participate in the activities during the course, so you do need to be fit enough to climb up obstacles and be relatively comfortable at heights (with a safety rope!)

This is a great opportunity to tick-off another activity qualification, at a significant discount and have an enjoyable CPD developing weekend away. Given this is the centres’ closed season, we won’t get another such opportunity until next winter, so please grab the opportunity whilst
