Gear needed:

  • Necker
  • Rain gear: Light rain coat and pull ups.
  • Comfortable back pack is important as distance covered will be at least 20km. (25Ltr bag is big enough)
  • Sun hat, sun lotion & insect repellent is a must.
  • Footwear: Ground will be varied so sturdy walking shoes or boots are a must have.
  • Change of clothes in a separate bag, just in case, can be left in car.
  • Cubs can travel wearing their trainers and change into boots at start of hike.
  • Food: Have a good breakfast. Bring healthy packed lunch and plenty of water + bag of Tayto crisps (good for replacing lost salts on hikes).
  • Please no fizzy drinks, they are dead weight to carry and give a false energy boost.
  • Bivvi bag or large plastic bin bag (to sit on during breaks).
  • Whistle, compass and cubs personal 1st aid kit.

No shorts, only long trousers to be worn.

Some parents are helping with transport on the day, so please do offer if you’re free.

You’re also very welcome to join your cub on the hike.

If you have any questions please do contact your cubs leader.
