WHERE CAN I FIND THE LIST OF SPECIFIC MATERIAL FOR MY CAMP?

Here you have an exemple about how can you find the specific material list for Wild Adventure Camp.

WHERE WILL I SLEEP?

In 25 person tents in the middle of the woods, next to a river. You’ll sleep in double or triple bunk beds, 200cm long and 70cm wide. If you like sleeping with a pillow you’ll have to bring it from home or you can make it by putting a jumper or towel inside a pillowcase.

WHAT KIND OF SLEEPING BAG SHOULD I BRING?

We’ll be sleeping 1,900m above sea level and on warm summer nights the temperature is 10º﮿C or 12º﮿C. However, if it rains in the afternoon, the night is cooler, around 6﮿ºC or 8﮿ºC. We could get cold northern winds in the middle of July and the temperature could drop to 2﮿ºC. For this reason we recommend that you bring a winter sleeping bag suitable for temperatures around 0﮿C / 5﮿ºC. If you can’t get a thick sleeping bag then you can rent one of ours. Ask us for information about our sleeping bags which are suitable for temperatures as low as -8﮿ºC.

WHAT FOOTWEAR SHOULD I BRING?

It’s essential to bring one (if possible two) pairs of hiking shoes. If you want you can bring a pair of hiking sandals, like the ones in the picture. Feel free to bring your wellies too!

WHAT IS THE ADEQUATE FOOTWEAR FOR CANYONING (JUNIOR ADVENTURE AND WILD ADVENTURE)?

We do canyoning with laced up sports shoes + a non-slip sole. This ensures adequate adherence to the rocks, and if they’re well tied it avoids them floating away downstream.
We DON’T use flip flops, water shoes, pumps or anything similar for this activity.

HOW CAN I SEE THE PHOTOS FROM THE CAMP?

During the camp we’ll be taking pictures of the activities…you’ll find them here you’ll find them here

WHY CAN’T I BRING MY TABLET OR VIDEO GAME CONSOLES?

Because we’ll be spending the day walking, looking, doing, touching, playing…and we won’t even have time to charge our devices…Ahh! There are also no outlets in the tents.

CAN I BRING MY PHONE?

Those of you over 14 can bring your phone. Many of you will arrive by train, boat or plane and having a phone makes things easier. However, take into account that once you arrive at the camp the use of mobile phones will be regulated by the teachers.

SHOULD I BRING MONEY?

It’s not necessary that you bring even a euro, EVERYTHING is included in the price. You can bring a maximum of €20 if you want to buy a Camp T-shirt, a hat, sun cream or something that you may have forgotten to bring. Take into account that the organization is not responsible for the money that you decide to bring.
