Packing list

This packing list should be regarded as an suggestion and isn’t necessarily the only things that will be needed. Sometimes there might be something extra – make sure to check with your leaders or the note for the activity. The leaders will always be equipped with a cellphone. Remember to not bring to much candy, sometimes you’re not even allowed to bring candy – but be calm, there’s always some kind of candy on each camp.


Almost always:

  • Backpack (to have your stuff in)
