Packing List

Not sure what to bring? Here are our suggestions!

Packing list

Photo ID

You must bring your photo ID with you. Upon entry to the event, your membership will be checked against it. We also assume a duty of care, to ensuring that minors are not consuming alcohol, and reserve the right to check if in doubt.

Food And Drink

You must bring all your food and drink for the event, storage for your supplies and any cooking equipment you require. Cooking is allowed in Free Camping, and fires are permitted as long as you remove the turf (and keep it alive to replace when you leave) to create a fire pit.

Water

We have a water tap on site, to provide drinking water. We recommend bringing a large container to fill up and store at your camp, as well as a smaller bottle to take around with you during the day. It’s a bit of a walk uphill from the tap to Free Camping, so consider investing in a roller or a cart if you think you’ll find it difficult. Keep an eye on Loomio for a communal spring water order if you prefer that.

Note that the use of non-biodegradable soap and chemicals is not permitted anywhere on site.

Plate / Cutlery / Cup

Theme camps that gift food or drinks will expect you to bring your own plate, bowl or cup. Top Burner Tip: Attach it to yourself with a carabiner – there’s nothing worse than a lost cup!

Drinks

Our participants bring their own soft drinks and alcoholic beverages as there are no vendors on site. Consider bringing extra to gift to one of our theme camp bars!

Smokers are required to carry and use a portable ashtray and be respectful of other participants. Smoking is forbidden in all enclosed spaces.
