Founded in 2005 by a group of local thrill-seekers, the WASC is a thriving and supportive community club of like-minded folk interested in sharing skills and experiences in the great outdoors. When you join us, you'll be welcomed as a friend. As a member, you'll be valued. Help shape the club by connecting with your adventure kin face to face at events, meetings in local pubs and via social media. Join our Facebook group to check out our calendar of upcoming events and find out what’s on.
There are no membership requirements; the club is open to novices and seasoned adventurers alike, with pricing options for individual adults and families. Members get British Mountaineering Council (BMC) membership, public liability insurance for club meets, access to club equipment, exclusive discounts and a wealth of knowledge and experience from other members. From spring 2020, we intend for WASC membership to include affiliation with British Canoeing, increasing our insurance cover and access to all things paddle sport.
The membership form also contains the details of the WASC bank account to which you should transfer your memberships fees (using your name as the payment reference).
Annual WASC membership is £28 for adults or £18 for under 18s. All memberships fall due on 1 January and we usually send out a reminder mailing in November. If you are joining midway through the year then we also offer a half year membership of £15 for adults or £10 for under 18s. If you join as a family then we offer a 10% discount.
This fee includes membership to WASC and use of equipment and it covers insurance with the BMC and British Canoeing to enjoy outdoor activities with peace of mind. BMC membership comes with third party liability insurance for climbing, mountaineering and hill-walking club meets. It is also includes store discounts at over 700 retailers. British Canoeing membership also provides third party liability insurance for paddling and also the waterways license.
