George Fisher Summer Academy

Image for article George Fisher Summer Academy

If you missed out on last year’s Academy; don`t worry, it`s back! This year we will still be aiming to inspire and empower you with another weekend of adventure and knowledge.

British Mountain Guide and Haglofs ambassador Bruce Goodlad will join us again, to be your constant companion and inspiration for the weekend. Normally resident in Chamonix, Bruce loves the opportunity to revisit his old stomping grounds in the Lakes

Last year we had the “Journey” as our theme as we paddled and trekked through Borrowdale and Eskdale onto Scafell Pike. This year we will cover many of the same skills, but this time we are aiming to have a series of “Micro Adventures” while testing clothing from Haglofs and equipment from MSR and Thermarest amongst others.

Spaces are limited; due to the nature of the event there is space for just eight people on this year’s Academy. Included in these adventures will be getting to grips with rock climbing, navigation, wild camping and more!

We are looking for those who have a passion for the outdoors but feel the need for more skills to take on their next adventure. Some walking experience is preferable, but enthusiasm is essential.

The weekend will start on Friday afternoon when we meet up in store to discuss the plan for the weekend and get a feel for the needs of the group. We’ll sort out kit and then get an early night. On Saturday we will take in the first of our adventures, culminating in an overnight camp on the hill. On Sunday, hopefully refreshed after a good night’s sleep in a quiet part of the Lakes, there will be more adventure and a mid-afternoon finish.

The weekend includes all camping equipment and food for the time on the hill, transport and qualified guides. Equipment for the weekend will be supplied by our partner brands (see below), so the only things you need to bring with you are standard hill walking clothing and footwear. The cost of this amazing weekend is only £80.

Book now to secure your adventure!

Partner brands: Haglofs, MSR, Thermarest, Garmin, Mountain House, Trek and Mountain Media.
