The camp has recommended to keep these general considerations in mind when organising your child’s camp list:

Clothing taken on outdoor or adventure programs should allow participants to be comfortable and protected in a range of conditions, regardless of the season. Clothing that is quick drying and resistant to damage is ideal. Clothing should fit the person well. Practicality is the emphasis rather than how fashionable clothes are! Unsuitable or ill-fitted clothing can impair student participation and may be hazardous.
