Frequently Asked Questions
Old clothing that you don’t mind getting mucky and scuffed is advisable. The following is recommended:
- Spare jumper/fleece
- Hat and gloves (especially during colder weather)
- Sturdy Footwear (wellies or walking boots)
- Waterproof coat
- Waterproof trousers
- Spare clothing (sometimes people fall/jump into the river…)
Clothing should be suitable for the weather/temperature, and you should be prepared to get it dirty; ideally long sleeved, must be long legged. Clothing which is cotton/wool based is more resistant to sparks from the fire than man-made fibres; clothing which dries quickly is recommended, avoid jeans.
In colder weather several layers of clothing are better than one thick layer, as well as allowing you to add or remove layers as you warm up or cool down.
Sturdy footwear is best for the forest and for the majority of the activities we do. By this we mean something that has a good sole so that you do not get sore feet from uneven ground, has good grip and some ankle protection.
Wellies can be worn when doing Forest School or bushcraft activities, in colder weather feet can get cold though- so two pairs of warm socks in large wellies are the best approach. Tight wellies squeeze the blood out of the foot and they get cold anyway!
Trainers are OK during warmer weather when in the forest, but don’t offer enough grip in the wet or enough ankle support when walking/expeditioning.
All specialist activity equipment is provided. Upon booking, if there is a need to bring equipment you will be sent a relevant equipment list.
Quite often people wish to bring their own equipment to use. If this is a sheath knife you wish to use during a bushcraft session or a tool during greenwood working you are more than welcome to bring it- however please notify Rewilding staff before using it and its use must be in line with the usual safeguards in place if the tool was supplied by Rewilding.
Unfortunately you cannot bring your own rifle for shooting sessions as these have to be tested to ensure they are within legal capacity.
