Kit should be brought to camp in a rucksack or holdall. If you have any problems getting hold of any of this equipment, please let us know – we may have some items we can lend to you. Please mark your child’s equipment clearly with their name and our group: 18th Warrington.
Please bear in mind that the cubs will be required to carry their own equipment between the entrance and our designated camp site – up to 10 minutes walk.
Please get your Cub to help pack, so they know where everything is.
All items should be clearly labelled with the Cub’s name.

- No mobile phones, electronic games, or other gadgets are allowed.
- It is best to pack a rucksack or soft bag. Suitcases and bin bags are not appropriate. However it is a good idea to use a black bin bag as a “lining” to a rucksack to keep the clothes dry just in case the rucksack gets wet.
- It will be cold at night. Please send your Cub with an appropriate sleeping bag and blanket to ensure they are warm.
- Pocket money – maximum £5 – in a labelled purse or wallet.
- If your child will need medicines during the camp – please speak to the Camp Leader prior to the camp date, who will advise you of the arrangements.
- All medicines need to be in their original packaging, with caution sheet, inside a clear zip-lock bag. The bag should be labelled with your child’s name, the medication, dosage and frequency. Medicines should be handed to the leader NOT packed inside a bag.
