What Your Child Should Wear:
- Comfortable clothes that can get very dirty and are appropriate for the weather. If it is cold or raining, please avoid cotton clothing. Cotton is great for sunny days. Fleece, wool or synthetic fibers stay warm when wet.
- Sturdy shoes that can get wet and very dirty
- Rain-gear or poncho if significant rain is in the forecast
What to Pack in your Child’s Backpack:
- Packed lunch
- Mid-morning snack
- Full water bottle (1 liter minimum, larger kids need 2 liters)
- Mosquito repellent
- Sun protection or Sunblock – apply before camp
- Extra Layers or rain-gear for cold, damp weather. Synthetic or wool is better than cotton.
- Knife (if you don’t have one, we have extras to provide)
What NOT to Pack:
- Toys from home
- Extra weight. We will be hiking each day, and heavy backpacks become a challenge for all. Bring only what you need.
- Each morning there will be a game that the kids can join as they arrive and a nature table set up for those who prefer a quieter or more stationary activity to start off their day. This is followed by our morning routine to check-in on the forest. We will walk to our base where we will have circle-time with song and a story that introduces a general theme or focus for the day. After the story, we will spend the majority of the day exploring and adventuring in the forest. Days are full of games, challenges, and fun! We close the day again in a circle, with thanks and recall of our day.
