Equipment

You can find a packing list for groups here and a packing list for scouts here.

First aid

Each group needs enough first aid equipment for a week. The group needs to be able to treat small injuries and cuts. Every patrol participating in the hike will need a first aid kit.

There will be trained personnel on the camp site for larger injuries.

Cooking

Each group needs to bring equipment to cook and heat dishwater. We might not be allowed to light fires, so please take this into account.

Fire safety

Each group needs at least two 6kg fire extinguishers, at least one fire blanket and two 10 litre buckets of water.

These need to be easily accessible on site and marked.

Hike

Information about the hike is here. International groups will go on the hike Tuesday July 5 to Wednesday July 6.
