Out There Club – Maes y Lade

The Out There Club is run by volunteers (based at the Maes y Lade Outdoor Centre) so young people in and around the Hay on Wye area have the chance to take part in organised outdoor pursuits, learn new skills and spend time with their friends in the great outdoors. 

The club runs activities under the Maes y Lade Centre activities license and operating procedures.

Anyone aged 8-11 can apply to join the Juniors and aged 11-16 can apply to join the seniors. You can apply by getting your parent or guardian to fill out the application form on the link RIGHT HERE! 2021 MEMBERSHIP FULL

It costs £10 for a year’s membership and £4 for a standard session to help cover kit wear and tear. For trips away or involving mini bus travel then there maybe an additional cost.  

You can contact the club by emailing maesylade@essexboysandgirlsclubs.org
