Mersey Weaver Trek is an Annual event in July open to 10-12 year olds from any Scout group in the District. Scouts walk approx 12km in teams of 4-6, camp overnight and cook their own evening meal. Every one who takes part receive’s a special necker and a complimentary breakfast the following morning. Trek is a fantastic way to get an introductory feel of what’s involved in particpating in an event like Cheshire Hike or just opportunity for our younger Scouts to experience the Great Outdoors.

The Event organised by Richard Hamilton and supported by the District’s three Explorer Units, Mersey & Weaver Active Support Units.

The event has run twice now and over the course of the last Trek the Scouts were asked about why they wanted to take part and then later their thoughts on the event – feedback was very positive with everyone recommending and wanting to do it again next year – check out the video from Trek 2015 below:


Organisation for this year’s Trek is already underway and more information will be available soon.
