About Us

Who are Chelmsford YHA Group?

We are a social group, based in Chelmsford, Essex, UK, interested in Youth Hostelling, the countryside, walking and other outdoor activities. Run by and for its members, the group is affiliated to the Youth Hostel Association of England and Wales and aims to promote interest in, and enjoyment of, Youth Hostelling.

Some of us in the Lake District

We meet most Wednesdays at the YMCA in Chelmsford, to plan hostelling weekends, and for quizzes, games, slide shows, talks and other activities.

We have weekend trips once a month to hostels around the country, and occasional longer trips. Most trips are centred around hill-walking. Popular destinations include Wales, the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands. But that's not all!

We have a local walk about once a month, usually on a Sunday and including a pub lunch. Cycling, climbing, backpacking, skiing, orienteering, theme parks, sailing and trips to the seaside have all featured in our programme. Other social and outdoor events are held, such as picnics, barbecues, treasure hunts, sponsored events, skating, visits to the theatre and cinema...
