At Mountain Freedom we offer a range of skills based programs to help you increase your outdoor experience. Our very popular Mountain Skills Courses cover the essentials for being safe and gaining maximum enjoyment from your time spent in the outdoors. We cover topics such as navigation, river crossing, scrambling, camps, bivouacs and emergency procedures on these 2 or 4 day courses.
We also offer scrambling and rock climbing programs, for both beginners and improvers, designed to give you both the technical skills and the attention to safety needed to enjoy a more vertical environment.
If you fancy stepping outside of your comfort zone a little with family, friends or workmates then get in touch. Trekking and camping are great for getting your team pulling together. Being in an unfamiliar environment and having to solve problems without your usual tools, backups and support network can be very challenging. It’s an ideal way to discover more about your innate skills, learn to place trust in yourself and others, and gain confidence in your decision making processes. Quite apart from that, it’s great fun! You get an immense sense of satisfaction from taking on challenges head on, working as a team and sharing new experiences.
Activities such as night hiking, orienteering and treasure hunts really build your team skills. There’s always the opportunity to learn new stuff like micro-navigation, river crossing, camp craft and wilderness skills.
The ethos of these team challenges is to develop and highlight strengths and skills, not to expose weaknesses and push you too hard. It’s all about having fun at the end of the day – rest assured that with your instructors’ many years of experience in this field, you’ll certainly be having lots of that!
All development training programmes are tailor made to your group’s individual requirements, feel free to get in touch and we’ll be happy to go through some options with you.
