General Notes 

  • We would ask that your child travels to and from the camp in uniform.
  • Please try and pack all your child’s belongings into a single bag (better if they pack themselves).
  • DO NOT attach items to the outside of the bag as these often get damaged or lost.
  • Black bin bags are not suitable for bedding rolls (roll mats) as they tear easily, with the result that the contents get lost or soiled in transit.
  • Please place wash proof name labels in all clothing, which should have your child’s name and group.
  • Please label with either indelible ink and/or engraving as appropriate, with your child’s name and group.
  • Plates, mugs and cutlery are provided (unless otherwise stated).
