Packing for hot and cold weather

As the British weather can be unpredictable at times, please bear this in mind when packing your things for camp. It is always best to over pack than under pack in case the weather changes at the last minute. Always check the weather before coming and then add in bits you may need such as hoodies, waterproof clothing and wellies/walking boots.

Tips for packing for your dog

Making sure your dog has everything that they need is a key part of your packing process. The essentials such as food, water and a bed are needed without doubt but making sure that other bits to help them settle in properly such as some toys and treats make all of the difference. 

For some dogs this may be their first time staying away from home, so making sure that they feel right at home in their new surroundings is essential. Bare these points in mind when choosing what to pack for your dog for camp.
