What will I need?

All clothing items should be named to avoid loss and should be packed in a kit bag or rucksack that should also be labelled and named. Children will be required to carry/move their own luggage (unless medically unable).

Absolutely NO money, mobile phones, MP3 players, jewellery, watches or similar items.

Every child will be given a photograph recording their time at the camp, so most children prefer not to risk the loss of a camera. We will take a group photograph of all participants and ensure that every child is given a copy.

Remember, all food, snacks and drinks are included for your child (except for the packed lunch required on the first day)

Please be aware that on certain activities clothing will get wet and muddy! All property remains the sole responsibility of the child whilst on the visit.

Whilst cabins have been arranged for the children, it may be possible for some children to sleep under canvas for a night if they choose to do so. The contact form for the visit will be sent to you, for completion and return, in May.
