A key aim of the Camp 404 project 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 2020 and 2021 will not exceed £250 per person. This price is for a 3 day expedition to the Lake District or similar upland area of the UK, and is fully inclusive, covering travel by public transport from Essex, and a fee for Emma the expedition leader (payable directly to EHMT). 

As well as keeping costs as low as possible financial support may also be available to those living locally. If your circumstances mean that cost is a barrier to participation please see the Bursary Fund page for more information.

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