Target Group: South asian muslim women
Impact: 3-day camping trip for beginner women with 6 participants
Beginner camping session for 6 women in the Lake District, England.
They were taught navigation skills, outdoor cooking skills, camping skills and mountain skills.
The area they stayed was Langdale, a beautiful location in the Lake District, they spent two days hiking and one day wild camping. We had many women from inner city areas who had been longing for a weekend like this. Those who took part learnt a lot and this course has built up their confidence and given them the educational resources they needed. The women also participated in a wild swim to finish off the weekend.
