Trek Tipi Bushcraft Adventure Kit List

We have outlined below what we think you are going to need with you on a Trek & Tipi camp weekend. If there is anything you think we may have missed then please do let us know.

When you arrive on the morning of your Trek & Tipi camp, to make the trek a lot more enjoyable, you will leave your camp gear with us and we will transport it to the camp site. You will be trekking with your day sack only so, to save a lot of unpacking in the car park, please ensure your packs are split accordingly between day stuff and over night things.
