Instructor Hire

All of the staff and instructors at Yr Hafod are volunteer Scout Leaders and therefore we can’t hire them out for Scout or external groups booked into our hostel.

We recommend you check your local area for permit holders using the permit search feature of Compass or search for a local instructor to hire through the Mountain Training Association, alternatively why not book on one of our Explorer Scout Adventure Weekends?
