Kit-list for the day:

  • A small day pack, backpack with:
  • Wet gear; waterproof jacket and trousers – essential!
  • Wellington boots or waterproof hiking boots
  • Hat and gloves.
  • Avoid cotton, esp. jeans as it gets cold when wet. Use a wicking base layer if you have it. LIDL and ALDI often stock these.
  • A change of clothes in the car for when you pick them up (they may well be mucky/wet/cold)
  • Lunch and several snacks - we need sustained energy in the outdoors, please avoid sugary treats (although the odd marchmallow may find its way onto the end of a stick as a treat :)
  • A drink, a bottle of water and a hot drink in a flask is very nice.
  • Any medication your child needs, please inform us in advance.
  • Your place will be reserved upon receipt of completed booking form and payment, many thanks!

    FOR PARENTS WHO WANT TO VOLUNTEER DURING KIDS CAMPS

    Parents are encouraged to volunteer during kids camps, it is as rewarding for YOU as it is for your child to be immersed in forest culture for the day and is a valuable shared experience. This includes gaining your own experience by participating, observing, assisting only when asked and helping the leader when necessary.

    See volunteer information attached under “Further reading”. Please email [email protected] if you would like to get involved.

    Why different prices? I endeavour to keep costs as low and inclusive as possible, however there is a higher cost in running camps in Newcastle, hence the different amount.
