Quick View Kit List for Children

Children may get wet and muddy every day. Whilst clothes can be dried in the drying room overnight, underwear and socks will need to be changed at least once a day.

The following is a kit list for each child to bring with them. It is an essential list regardless of the season, and it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that their child is adequately equipped. Safety outdoors starts with basic clothing.

*Please make sure that ALL your child's clothing is labelled.

• Underwear for each day
• 5 x pairs of thick woolen socks (loop lined ski socks are best)

• NO JEANS are allowed for out of doors use
• Set of old, but warm, clothing for caving
• Hat, scarf, gloves
• Old trainers that can get wet and muddy
• Wellington boots and walking boots if you have them. (Do not go and buy these especially for Tirabad as the Centre has them available.)
• Drink bottle (essential – more than half a litre)
• Sun hat in the summer
• Swimsuit
• Sun tan lotion
• Insect repellent (summer)
