Mid Kent Outdoor Pursuits and Social Group is nearly 25 years old and is as strong as ever, with about 50 members across a wide age range.

All events are organised locally by our own members, and if there's something you'd like to try it's up to you to suggest it! We meet on Tuesday evenings and most weekends, and events generally take place in the Maidstone and Medway areas.

We'd like you to come along to a few of our events to get a feel for the group before you join us. When you do join us the membership is a very reasonable £10 per year, which covers our overheads and is used to subsidise our more active events. We are affiliated to the YHA, which gives us the benefits of Group YHA membership for weekends away and provides a YHA Insurance policy to cover us at our organised events. For more information, enquiries about events, etc. please email and we'll put you in touch with a member who's local to you.

We have a new page - we'd encourage all exisiting and prospective members to join this Meetup group, so you can RSVP to events and be notified of any additional events that are added to our programme, sometimes at short notice. The easiest way to log in to Meetup is to just click 'log in with Facebook details', but if you aren't on Facebook, or don't want to link to Facebook, then just create a brand new Meetup account. It doesn't cost members anything to join our Meetup group, but you do need to pay membership fees to the group if you want to come to our events, after a trial period
