Marrick Priory – Clothing and Equipment list
If your child is going to Marrick Priory see below Clothing and Equipment.
The quantity of clothing you bring will always depend on your visit duration and chosen
activities. Generally participants will be encouraged to wear clothing in layers, according to the time of year and prevailing weather conditions (3 or 4 layers on the upper body are normal for most activities). Synthetic, rather than cotton, material is commonly regarded as being more effective as a base layer (next to the skin).
Denim jeans are not suitable for outdoor activities, but are ideal to be kept for evening indoor
