Outdoor clothing

Outdoor clothing should be tough and comfortable. Wearing several thin layers is better than a few thick layers. A waterproof jacket and several sweatshirts underneath are sufficient. Jeans should not be worn, as they are slow to dry, clinging and cold. Natural colours or camouflage will give you a better chance of spotting wildlife. Walking boots are ideal, but wellies in wet weather and trainers in dry weather will suffice.

Food

You will also need to bring food for the weekend (2 x breakfast, 1 x lunch and 2 x evening meals). You can cook over the camp fire, or you can bring your own stove. Hot water is provided as the kettle will be over the fire all through the course.
