Scout Adventures Great Tower

Birks Road, Newby Bridge, LA23 3PQ. England

Scout Adventures is owned and run by the Scouts. For over 100 years, we have delivered opportunities and activities to millions of young people.
Set in the heart of the Lake District, on the shores of Windermere, Great Tower is one of our most stunning locations. Discover, explore and be inspired by our 250 acres of woodland and rocky-crags perfect for hiking as well as being in England’s largest National Park. The Lake District is home to Scafell Pike (England’s highest Mountain), Wast Water (England’s deepest lake) and thriving communities like Keswick and Ambleside.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
