JEM Training, Mere Mountains and Lakeland Team Events


Founded in 1991 Mere Mountains has been trading successfully in activities and adventure experiences in the Lake District, Cumbria and Yorkshire. Mere Mountains provides the technical activity provision for all of the Mere Mountains Group Companies providing a single robust safety system for all our client groups.
John and Elspeth Training (JEM Training) quickly developed to cater for the need of professionals looking to train in specialist skills and develop advanced group work skills. Most of the outdoor providers in the Lake District have been trained by JEM training at some point in their Development.
Lakeland Team Events is a younger venture recognising that there is a middle ground for organisations looking for fun, easy to book, easy to organise, community building team events. If you are looking for something just slightly more "teamy" than a single activity but less involved than a full on training event; contact us we are right what you are looking for. If you are looking for the other two may we recommend having a look at:
