Please find below the kit list for Lochearnhead if you don’t already have it.
We would like to draw your attention to and emphasise a few points re kit as we always get Cubs sent to Lochearnhead with inadequate clothing and footwear.
PLEASE make sure ALL items of clothing and footwear have names on as we collect in piles of clothing to put in the Drying Room at Camp if the weather is Bad and always have issues returning it to the rightful owner!
Remember Plastic Bags for wet or muddy kit!
When we say ‘adequate clothing’ please bear in mind we are not going for a walk up Fully woods, we are out in the Hills and it can be Very Wet, Very Cold and Very Exposed! Fully Waterproof Jacket and Trousers are essential.
Please pack enough spare clothing for an adventurous and probably wet weekend – we always get boys who run out.
Don’t send him with jeans as once they are wet they stay wet!
Footwear is extremely important. Cubs must come with a pair of Walking Boots or Wellies for the Hill Walk in addition to a pair of trainers for on site. Trainers are NOT SUITABLE for out on the Hill.
We do take spare kit with us for Emergencies.
Finally, PLEASE Pack your Son’s Kit WITH him and not FOR him. On many occasions boys are not aware what kit they have with them!
(For the 2 brave Parents who are also pitching up, just pack more of the same and bring plenty of energy!)
Last minute reminder that your son MUST have a completed Medical Form to enable him to go!
