Essential information: Scouts 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 overtrousers or similar windproof outer garments and a woolly hat are necessary. Old trainers or similar soft footwear, with socks should be worn. Wetsuits will be provided, but Scouts must bring overtrousers to protect them. 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.
