Life at camp will be simple and we will learn how to spend our days in a calm and peaceful environment in the heart of the forest.
Please encourage your children to prepare their own bag with your help, but please don’t prepare it for them. This way they will know exactly what they have with them, they will easily locate what they need and learn to take care of their own belongings. The recommended equipment (on the back) is necessary for the camp. It is not mandatory to buy the recommended items but keep in mind that it is quality value-for-money equipment to be used in the future as well. You can use what you have at home that fits the description. If you are not sure about something you have at home, please ask us.
You can purchase the required equipment at our own store Get Out outdoor store. We carry all the equipment and everything one needs for adventure and outdoor sports, and we offer 20% discount for your purchases. Free next day delivery all over Cyprus. Please call Alexandros the store manager on 22311012 for anything you might need.

Camp Equipment list:
- Soft Duffle bag without wheels 60 Litres max: Duffle bags are soft yet durable, can fit in a lot of things, and can be easily stored in the tent without taking up a lot of space. They are very convenient with a big opening to facilitate easily locating things. One bag per child. Please check the dimensions to be no more than 60cm X 35cm X 35cm height. Only soft duffle bags with NO wheels, NO bulky travel luggage, and NO trekking rucksacks please. It should fit everything including the recommended sleeping bag and mat if these are compact. In case your sleeping bag and/or your sleeping mat are bulky and they don’t fit inside, those can be carried in a nylon bag that can be folded and saved as soon as participants settle in the tents.

Contact during camp
Campers will call you once on Monday afternoon. If requested, they are allowed a second phone call during the week. If you need to urgently contact your child, you must call the Camp Leader. Too frequent contact with your child is not necessary and intervenes with your child’s adjustment to life at the camp. Please only call Marios in case of an emergency. HE WILL call you if your child is having a real problem or to clarify something if necessary.
Contact number before Camp: 22254612 & 99441585 (Louisa)
Contact number during Camp: 99359214 (Marios -Camp Leader) (send SMS please if not urgent)
Policy on mobile phones
Campers can bring a phone to be handed to team leaders on arrival and handed out to campers only for phone call time. If they do not bring a phone, they will use our team’s phones to call. Phones will not be given to campers at any other time. Phones will be kept in a safe place. One phone per family please.
Some of the children are going to camp for the first time. Remember: they are old enough to be doing this. And they are ready, but they also need your support. We need two things from you: your trust in us as educators and your support and encouragement to your child. Your camper will call you on the first day of the camp in the afternoon.
Please note that, especially children who are going for the first time, have mixed emotions on the first day(s) and might get emotional when they call you. Please avoid asking too many investigative questions (I.e., Did you eat? Are you tired? etc.). Instead let them speak and express themselves. Marios and the team are there for them, to guide them and help them with love and respect, each and every one of them individually. If you are tough for them too, you will get them back stronger and tougher ☺ Please only call Marios in case of an emergency. He WILL call you if your child is having a real problem or to clarify something if necessary. Please remember no news is good news. You can also text or call me (Louisa) if you have any concerns during camp.
We remain at your disposal for any assistance you might need or any questions. Our team is looking forward to welcoming you for an unforgettable adventure!
