What will they need?

Good quality waterproofs are essential!!

Good quality waterproofs are essential!!

If you are interested in sending your child to Treehoppers they will require some additional clothing to keep them warm, dry and happy all year round. As all good Scouts will tell you its always best to 'be prepared'! 

We provide a full kit list (see links below) but the important things to remember are: it can often be colder in the woods so layers are really important; it will often be muddy and wet so good quality waterproofs are essential and finally please send them in old clothes and expect them to get dirty.

Don’t let this put you off though, we can recommend some great children’s clothing providers and many have offered discounts to Treehoppers families. We realise though that good quality outdoor clothing can be expensive but there are always bargains to be had second hand, so keep an eye on Ebay and similar selling sites.

We do have some items that we can lend to you for your child for the first term and we hope to add to our stocks as time goes on so that we can offer this to more families.
