Clothing & Equipment List

Please note:

  • Ensure that everything is well named.
  • Please involve your child with the packing of their bag so they know what they have!
  • Each child is responsible for his/her own gear - leave any valuables at home.
  • Use this checklist to mark off what you have packed and then you child can use it at

 the end of camp to double check they have everything.

  • On the first day children will need a packed lunch including morning tea.
  • The school will not be accountable for lost or misplaced gear.  The children are responsible for their own belongings.  We will, however, carry out a thorough check before we depart.
