This camp we will be traveling to the national park near to the place where we will be camping Saturday night. Sunday we will be going abseiling at a place which is a short walk away from the camp sight.
We will be packing the Bus Saturday morning before church so that we can be on the road as soon as possible after Church lunch.
We are planning to be back at church at 7:30pm on Sunday.
Clothes for day activities
Clothes to sleep in
at least 2L water bottle
Food for one breakfast, one tea, & one lunch
Specific for abseiling
Long pants or shorts that come to the knee
Hairband (all long hair must have died back in a bun is best)
All meals will need to be able to cook over the fire or a portable camp stove.
Cereal (something like muesli)
Lunch: (food that does not require cooking. Salad can be used for sandwiches and wraps just ensure it is stored securely. I find cucumber and tomato are good.)
Dinner: (Simple Cooked meal)
Our major activity for this camp is abseiling. Abseiling does inherit a considerable amount of risk. To deal with these risks we have compleated a comprehensive risk assessment.
Including myself, we will have 4 qualified and highly experienced staff. The pathfinders will be briefed on the processes and will be given clear instructions as they are needed. Our staff will also be checking all the equipment and will be conducting the activity according to industry standards.
When camping, or participating in any outdoor activities there are going to be risks involved. The outdoor industry calls this an acceptable amount of risk. On completing a risk assessment for this camp, it has been deemed as a low-risk activity. Our three major risks and prevention strategies are…
