Residential Summer Camps - What to Bring
Clothing, shoes & accessories
- Tracksuits, leggings, fleeces & combats, shorts & t-shirts - layers work best. Kids will get wet and mucky, so old clothes are ideal. Jeans are not suitable for activities.
- Shorts must be long sports shorts that cover the thigh to prevent rope burn and chaffing from equipment during activities. No cut-off or designer shorts.
- Rain jacket & trousers – it will rain!
- Woolly hat, gloves & warm socks – useful even in the summer months.
- Two pairs of trainers/runners for activities – one to keep dry and one to get wet.
- Comfortable clothes & pair of runners, sandals or crocs - for wearing in the evening after activities & travelling home.
- Two sets of swimwear – for water activities. A nylon thermal top is useful but not essential. Wetsuits are provided.
- Nightwear & underwear – enough for the whole stay!
- Sunhat/baseball cap & sunglasses – for sunny days.
- Plastic bags x 2 – essential for wet and muddy clothes.
- A net laundry bag – for pre-booked laundry service. Please clearly label all of your childs belongings.

- Towels x 4 – two for dorm room & two for activities.
- Toiletries – toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, roll on deodorant etc. There are no toiletries sold on-site. No aerosol deodorant permitted at camp.
- Sunscreen & lip balm – because the sun does come out!
