WOP’s Introductory Courses are open to women who are 18 and above; experienced trampers and beginners are welcome. The course aims to impart confidence with outdoor activities in a safe and supportive environment so that participants can relax and have fun while learning.

WOPs is a safe environment in which women who may be relatively new to outdoors challenges, can grow in confidence in the outdoors,achieve personal growth ,and make wonderful friends while having an amazing amount of fun!

To achieve this and provide a supportive and safe place we have the WOP’s ethos of caring and inclusivity.

The WOP’s Introductory Course is where this journey begins.

Course Feedback:

“Thank you so much for the wonderful weekend. It amazes me how much I need to learn and this was just a small part of the package of knowledge. It has broadened my love for the outdoors and I have now enrolled to do the bushcraft course in August and September with Mountain Safety. I think all clubs should apply this code of safety to their agenda. It’s a valuable asset to have not only as a becoming tramper, but for anyone who wishes to walk our lovely forests.”
