Like most of the country, Cumbria is now a Tier 4 area. However, following Government guidelines, Kepplewray is still able to provide educational and physical activities to groups who are in full-time education and to those young people who may be vulnerable and are part of a support bubble.
We continue to provide a Covid Secure environment in which young people may visit The Kepplewray Centre and take part in our great range of activities in The Lake District.
For further information please contact the Centre.
Kepplewray Launch Participation Inclusion Fund
The Kepplewray Centre in Cumbria is providing grants of up to 90% to get financially disadvantaged young people, and anyone living with disability or other barriers back into the great outdoors!
Kepplewray's new Participation Inclusion Fund is made possible by generous donations, and provides huge discounts to qualifying individuals within groups for residential and day outdoor activities. These include: stand-up paddle-boarding; kayaking; canoeing; ghyll scrambling; climbing; trekking and exploring; abseiling; archery; fencing and many others!

New Paddle Board Fleet...
Why not be one of the first to try out our new stand up paddle boards. These individual boards are fun, easy to control and perfect for the summer weather. We're even investing in some new wet-suits to make the activity even more enjoyable. find out more
Support Kepplewray During Coronavirus
Every month we usually welcome hundreds of young people to our Centre in the Lake District National Park to stay in the countryside and take part in some great activities, to develop themselves and learn about the world around them. We are specifically an inclusive centre and work with guests of all abilities and ages.
Due to COVID-19 many of our bookings were postponed and, as a charity, our income has been affected. Whilst we have taken the necessary steps to minimize outgoings and are using the available Government support schemes we still find ourselves facing a shortfall. We need nearly £5,000 per month to keep Kepplewray running, so you are able to help financially, please click here to go to our GoFundMe page.
Thank You from the Kepplewray Team.

Coniston to Barrow Walk
The Coniston to Barrow walk has been postponed this year due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Kepplewray had entered a team of over 30 walkers to undertake this event and the much more challenging Keswick to Barrow Walk to raise much needed funding for the Centre,
Due to the complete close down of the Centre this year which occurred during our busiest period we have lost most of the income for the year. If you would like to support Kepplewray and can make a donation, please click here.
We will be entering a team for next year's event on Saturday 8th May 2021.
