Brush off the mud when dry after you get home. Dont spend a fortune! Comfort is most important. Walking socks keep your feet as dry as you can to avoid blisters (flip flops are a good idea for the campsite to air your feet! no running around in socks on the

campsite) Tents the cosier the better, make sure you all know how to put it up (and quickly, straight away when you get to camp it might rain!). 3-man tents usually only sleep 2 comfortably (buy one that is for one more person than you need) Sleeping bags stuff them in, dont roll them wrap in a TOUGH black bin bag to stay dry. 2-3 season is best! Kipmat the only thing that can be attached to the outside of your rucksack (it MUST be in a sealed binbag too! getting this wet = hypothermia!) Clothes Use a layering system to trap air (which will keep you warmer) Inner layer (T-shirt/synthetic base layer) Middle layer (fleece/jumper) Outer layer (waterproof and windproof jacket) Legs NO JEANS or thick cotton tracksuit bottoms!! (why?) Synthetic tracksuit bottoms are best or walking trousers (maybe with long-johns underneath?). You must have waterproof over-trousers too. A hat is essential (to protect you from the sun!) Ideally, you should have a map case or zip-up plastic wallet to contain your map, route card and compass (there needs to be at least 2 compasses per group). Rucksack 55 to 65 litres with lots of outside pockets for easy access to water, food, waterproofs, notepads, pencils etc. A Head torch is a good investment too, rather than a torch (its hands free!) https://www.dofeshopping.org/dofe-expedition-kit-list/ This is downloadable (and on our website) and good to tick off what you need, have bought and have packed..but make sure you have everything on our school kit list at least In Erdington You can get almost everything from here !!!

Today you need to decide who is carrying what of your shared kit Rucksack Challenge Draw on your rucksack outline where will you put the following items and the rest of your kit: Tent inner Clothes Stove Water Food to cook Pots and pans Waterproofs Trail food Emergency rations Torch Toiletries First aid kit Rucksack Challenge Suggestion !

Search How to pack a rucksack on Google Videos if you want 10 minutes of even more of this! Torch, emergency rations, first aid kit Stove, pans, mug Clothes (separate bags) Tent Water, Trail food, Lunch Key Points: Red sections are easy to access. Heavy items should be near the top of the main section and close to your back. Stuff clothes (wrapped in bags around bigger items in the main section) Use the bathroom scales to see how heavy it is NO MORE THAN OF YOUR MASS !! Keep sharps away from the edge of compartments. Waterproofs Notepad, pencils Camera? Food to cook (noncrushable), cutlery Sleeping bag (sealed) Kipmat (sealed and securely strapped to the outside wrapped in a tough binliner) Wearing it: The hip belt should take most of the weight and should be at the top of the hip bone. Shoulder straps

should be tight-ish, ensuring the rucksack is high and against your back. Be as one with your rucksack Considerate & Careful Camping !!! PITCHING CAMP Pitch your tent as soon as you arrive (then collapse afterwards!!). If other members of your group arent helping with this, get them to fetch some water and start cooking or making cups of tea!! Tents must be at least 3m from any other tent, so you dont trip over the guy ropes. Choose a spot that is on flat ground, sheltered from the wind but NOT under a tree. Position the entrance away from the wind. Check that pegs will go into the ground easily, and insert them at a 45 angle. Peg out all of the guy ropes in line with the seams. There should never be any rubbish on the ground outside your tent use a black bag for rubbish. NO equipment or clothing should be left outside your tent. Keep everything inside or in the porch. Make your bed and get out your headtorch before it gets dark. Dont wear boots inside your tent and keep the inside clean and tidy. Dont let the inner tent touch the flysheet, otherwise it will get wet. You must be silent between 11pm and 7am. Dont go to the toilet on your own. STRIKING CAMP Wipe the bottom of your groundsheet dry before you pack it. Tie up guy ropes and shake water off the flysheet before packing the tent away (hang up tents to dry fully as soon as you get home). Make sure you check your pitch for any litter it should be spotless!! Hygiene and Cooking Safely

It is a good idea to try cooking one of these meals at home first. Use water from boil in the bag meals for washing up or making cup-a-soups. Use alcohol hand-gel before handling food directly and after you use the toilet. Clean mugs, cutlery and pans with washing up liquid (in a small bottle - shared) and a scourer in hot water to kill bacteria do this as soon as you have eaten. Dirty water should be disposed of onto soft ground away from fresh water. Put all rubbish into a black bag as you go along. Meth's bottles need to remain sealed at all times and well away from stoves. Gas canisters for stoves must be re-sealable (if you buy your own gas stove IF UNSURE DONT BUY IT! CHECK WITH US FIRST) School minibuses have fire extinguishers. Stoves must be more than 1 metre away from tents (never cook in the porch or have naked flames in the tent) Check cans have a ring-pull so you dont need a tin opener. Nesting pans are best (ones that fit inside each other) Use a plastic or tin mug for drinks. Trangia Gas Stoves (you have to buy your own gas!!) They have NO real nutritional value a snack not a substantial meal. Supernoodles are just as bad Good with dried pasta but not in a jar, packets are best OK for 1 day sarnies but

easily squashed pitta bread is better st The same as bread! Quick and easy as part cooked These dont travel well unless you have a banana case ! Avoid tins if you can, but maybe one for breakfast is ok Food choices YES or NO ? Ideal, easy to cook, no mess and nutritious.. But expensive !! Better than pot noodle but you really need to add meat, bread or something else too Ideal for filling pitta breads Food, Glorious Food You must eat regularly for energy and warmth. What you actually eat is down to personal preference but a sensible diet should be followed as much as possible. Ideally your choice of food should:

Have a high energy content A mixture of carbs, protein and fat Be light and easy to carry (eg packets instead of tins/jars) Quick and easy to prepare Tins should have a ring pull to save bringing a tin opener It is sensible to prepare shared meals (if you can agree) takes less time, less washing-up and the other group members could be doing other useful things eg. Pitching your tent! Wayfarer Meals Expensive (4.50) but varied and easy to cook. Look on Amazon ! Try them first you might hate them! Menu Ideas (in no particular order) Breakfast Lunch Dinner Trail Food Museli/porridge /weetabix with sugar, dried milk and hot water (and dried fruit/chocolate chips).
