For full-day activities or overnight activities a sample gear list has been included below. The best type of bag to bring is a rucksack or small gear bag that has 2 shoulder straps. This makes it easier to carry, particularly if there is a bit of walking involved. It is important to wear hiking boot OR comfortable walking shoes on activities. We do not encourage people to wear new clothes as often they will get dirty and or wet on activities! For the same reason denim jeans are not very suitable particularly if they get wet.
