Important Notes

  • We always travel to and from the site in full uniform.
  • Cotton clothes should be avoided as they become very cold when wet.
  • All equipment should be labelled with the Scout’s name.
  • Ideally everything should be packed in one rucksack as there can be a long walk (up to a mile) from vehicle access to the site. The Cubs and Scouts carry their own kit.
  • Quantities of clothing should be enough to be warm and must have at least two sets (in case one gets very wet) but otherwise should be minimised. Please bear in mind the variable nature of the British weather!
  • Do NOT take electronic equipment such as phones or games. Leaders will not be responsible for these and they may be confiscated.
