We will be outdoors all day, every day, come rain or shine! Let's dress for the mess.
To ensure our children are comfortable and prepared, please bring the items appropriate to the weather that day, labelled with your child’s name and leave valuables at home.
We ask you to apply the first layer of sunscreen before you drop your child off. A sun hat can help your child manage the heat too. We advise still to bring along waterproofs, fleece, long-sleeved tops, and trousers to reduce any risk of stings or bites.
When there is any rain or drizzle, as we often encounter some mud on our way into the forest, we would ask you to drop the children off dressed in their waterproofs, as we don’t want your child to get their clothes wet or muddy before we even start the day!
Any kit needed for sessions will be provided by Bushcraft Bairns. However, being a young adventurer is tiring work so we do recommend your Bairn brings a water bottle. If you use a particular sunscreen for sensitive skin, please pack it in your child’s rucksack.
Footwear: wellies or strong/sturdy (ideally waterproof) outdoor shoes and warm woolen or manmade fibre socks. (not cotton, too sweaty and rubs)
