You do not need to bring any specialist kit with you as that will all be provided. Bring with you the right clothing to allow you to take part in a range of activities:
Arrive wearing a swimsuit or shorts under your clothes so that you are ready for any water-based activities.
Bring a pair of trainers that you can get wet. You will need shoes with a decent hard sole that offer protection around the whole foot and will not fall off when doing activities. Please don't bring sandals, flip flops or water shoes as they do not offer enough protection.
A towel and a spare change of clothes.
Walking boots, long thick socks, a waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers, and a warm jacket or jumper. If you do not have walking boots and waterproofs, we can supply, but in response to COVID-19 guidelines, it is preferable you bring your own if possible. Make sure you still bring a long pair of thick socks and a warm top.
Avoid cotton clothing as much as possible as it is very ineffective when wet – it is heavy, uncomfortable and offers very little warmth. Synthetic clothing, like football tops or fleeces, works much better (as does some wool clothing).
Wear long clothing. It is necessary you are in a pair of full-length trousers and a long-sleeve top, even on the hottest of days. The thin long-sleeve top will help protect against the sun and long trousers, if out on the hill, will help protect against the risk of tick bites (your instructor will brief you about ticks as necessary).
Bring a hat (or two). If it's looking like it will be sunny and hot, bring a sun hat. Or if it's more likely to be wet and windy bring a warm hat. Not sure what it is going to be like? Bring both.
A rucksack and a couple of plastic bags. Plastic bags will help to keep the contents of your rucksack dry on activities and are useful to put anything you don’t need in to leave at the centre.
Please ensure you also bring a face covering and hand sanitizer in case these are needed.
