Suggested kit list

All of the specialist equipment that you will need during your stay – buoyancy aids, helmets, harnesses etc will be provided by Abernethy.  These are regularly checked and recorded by our instructional teams.  We don't expect our guests to bring any of these items.

The individuals in your group should aim to bring warm old clothes, trainers that can get wet and swim kit amongst other things.  We would hope that parents don't need to buy anything new for their child's visit to Abernethy.
