We want to remind you of a few things to make camp preparation easier:Nuts - We are a nut free camp - please make sure you check any food packed for your children lunch/snack. This include chocolate spreads such at Nutella!Water bottles - With the recent weather now is a good time to remind parents that your child should have a refillable water bottle with them for their time at camp. Please refrain from packing energy drinks or carbonated drinks. Suncream - We ask that all children attend camp with suncream applied. We will be able to provide suncream for children however we will not be able to apply this for children. Caps/headwear - We plan to be outside as much as possible.
