Camping is not essential although some days training will finish quite late. There is plenty of space for camping whether in hammocks or tents.
Please do not spend a fortune on the latest designer outdoor wear. This is not necessary and brambles etc may damage your shiny new kit.
It is important to remember that the weather in the UK is changeable at best. Our courses run in most conditions.
Therefore sensible outdoor clothing is important. You will be more comfortable in clothes that dry quickly.We can advise you if you are unsure.
Where possible choose natural materials.
You will need good footwear; walking boots or stout walking shoes is a good idea.However you may bring a pair of Wellington boots if it is wet. A spare pair of old trainers might be a good idea.
At least 3 pairs of socks.
A couple of Mid Layers. - Wool jumpers are more resistant to sparks than fleece.
Please do not wear Jeans, as these are slow to dry.
Poly cotton trousers are a good alternative x2.
Several changes of under wear.

A cotton sleeping bag or a silk liner if you think you may not be warm enough.
