About the Outdoor Club

Every activity at the Outdoor Club will have new, challenging, and sometimes rather unusual, objectives.

The goal, if you chose to undertake the challenge, is to complete as many of these objectives as possible, to earn yourself either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award; by completing 40, 70 or 100 of these challenges respectively.

There are objectives in each of main club activities, such as climbing, caving etc, but also special challenges for the more unusual activities.

The objectives range from simple ones, like going climbing for the first time, through to tieing an alpine butterfly knot, to the much more difficult like lighting a fire without matches or a lighter.

If you have completed one or more challenges you simply ask a leader to sign them off in your personal wallet.

At the end of the year, there will be certificates and prizes awarded at the Christmas AGM Meeting.
