What We Do

Information about who we are, what we do and how we work

What We Do

Make sure to keep an eye on our calendar and social media pages for specifics, but we generally structure events throughout the term as follows:

  • Seven Sunday trips: six of these are to the Lake District and one to the Yorkshire Dales
  • Three weekend trips: we visit destinations further away such as the Scottish Highlands or Snowdonia, and either camp or stay in a bunkhouse
  • Weekly socials: we hold our legendary pub socials every Monday during term, find out more about those here

How We Work

We are run entirely by a member-elected executive committee (exec). Our hustings take place in the middle of each academic year, and the new exec take over shortly after.

We hold a planning meeting at the end of each term for members to decide where we go for each hike and social the following term; needless to say, every member has an input into what the club does and all suggestions are warmly welcomed.

For transport, we use hired minibuses or coaches and rely on our own members to drive (click here if you’d be interested in doing that), meaning we’re able to keep costs down to a minimum. Sunday trips currently cost £10, whilst weekend trips normally cost between £30 and £40, typically much less than if you were to do it yourself.

Who We Are

We’re the LUHC exec, a group of students at Lancaster University, most likely like yourself. Find out more about us and the positions available here, and have a chat with one of us at our next event if you could see yourself in one of our roles.
