The BMC Student Safety Seminar is a must if you're involved in running a student climbing, hill walking or mountaineering club, and takes place over the weekend of 12-13 October at Plas y Brenin in North Wales.
Student clubs are invited to send a maximum of two representatives who are involved in running the club, and are active walkers and/or climbers.
This event gives university club members the opportunity to improve their club practices and ensure safer enjoyment of our cliffs and mountains. The weekend comprises a mixture of lectures, discussions and practical workshops covering climbing, walking, scrambling and mountaineering.
