We deliver training on expedition kit to participants. The kit guide here is a refresher for the participants of what was covered in their training and should help bring parents up to speed with what is needed for an expedition. We hope you find the guide useful, please get in touch if you have any suggestions or feedback.
Personal Clothing and Kit
Activ Adventures provides teams with their tents, trangias (stoves), trangia fuel, maps and compasses.
Each participant must provide their own personal clothing and kit including first aid kits and food for their expeditions. Training that we run in schools include sessions on kit and equipment, food and cooking and packing and carrying rucksacks.
We talk through the kit list during our expedition training sessions. The training aims to guide participants in making informed decisions about what is needed on expedition, including the type of rucksack to get, what makes a waterproof jacket and trousers ‘waterproof’, and what to think about when buying or borrowing walking boots.
