The mark of a healthy outdoor group is getting members into the outdoors! Official trips encourage new friendships, mentoring at all levels and a sense of belonging to the group.
Let’s face it, outdoor gear is usually expensive. For those who are new to the outdoors, or to a particular activity, the cost involved can be a real barrier to giving it a go. Clubs that offer gear hire are providing an excellent service to help people to get into, and stay safe in, our wild places.
