A key aim of Camp 404 is to give you an introduction to hill walking and wild camping which is affordable. 


Having the right gear and knowing the basics is essential. That can get expensive so we want to give you the chance to 'try before you buy'.

We run workshops, provide kit, learning resources and mentoring free of charge. The only costs are for expeditions, which during 2022 will be approximately £300 per person. This is  for a 3 day expedition to the Lake District or similar upland area of the UK, and is fully inclusive, covering all travel by public transport from Essex, and a fee for Emma the expedition leader (payable directly to EHMT). This price will be confirmed as soon as public transport costs are known for 2022.

As well as keeping costs as low as possible in some circumstances financial support may also be available to those living locally. Please see the Bursary Fund page for more information.

To reserve a place on a workshop or expedition, please go to the Bookings page.
