FAQ’s

Q. Will my child need any particular clothing or equipment?
A. We will provide all the specialist equipment necessary for your child to undertake activities. We ensure all of our equipment conforms to the British or European standards. Daily safety and equipment checks are made and recorded at all of our centres. Risk assessments have also been carried out for all activities at our camps. You can download a kit list from this site which identifies clothing that will be required to pack for your child. Please select the camp your child is travelling on this page to find the appropriate kit list. You may not win the argument (!), but we suggest that your child brings old clothes and items that you won’t mind them getting dirty/ damaged. It’s an adventure trip, and they will be getting muddy and wet, as well as staying in a tent or cabins where expensive items cannot always be locked away.

Q: My child can’t swim, can he/she still take part in watersports?
