Participants should be able to swim 50m as per Scout rules. Everyone needs to bring a complete change of clothing and a towel. It is important to wear warm clothing for water activities, as it feels cooler on the water. Green Withens is situated high on the moors and is often colder than less exposed sites. Plenty of warm clothing and a waterproof jacket and over trousers or similar windproof outer garments and a woolly hat are necessary. Old trainers or similar soft footwear, with socks should be worn. Shorty wetsuits may be fine on the beach but are not usually suitable for Green Withens unless worn with other clothing.
If it happens to be warm and sunny don’t forget a sunhat and suntan lotion. There is no drinking water on site, please bring your own drinks and snacks. Although there are toilets and changing rooms, there are no showers.
The team leader at Green Withens must be informed of any relevant medical information or special needs.
