Clothing

Sensible outdoor clothing is essential for our courses, quick drying is the best. Depending on the season, you may need to bring a warm hat, gloves and thermal layers. Several natural layers of clothing are better that one or two thick items. Jeans are best left at home, as they are very slow to dry. Waterproof hiking/walking boots are essential as they provide the best grip as sometimes areas of the woodland can get muddy and slippery; Wellies are a good alternative if raining. We recommend a pair of old trainers to give your feet a rest while around the campfire in the evenings.
