What to bring

At the Master camp

There is no good or bad weather

But good or bad equipment!

Dear boys and girls, the adventure of the Master Camp begins already with the preparation of the baggage! In trekking, in fact, everything that you decide to take with you must be considered for its weight and its bulk and having to carry the material in the backpack on your shoulders, a careful choice of what you decide to have becomes a fundamental component for the full success of the experience you are going to live…

Preparing a trekking backpack and the equipment for adventure camp is therefore in itself an experience of “essentiality” for which it is necessary to know how to renounce the superfluous and devote real attention to the choice of things: do we really need everything we think we need? For example: a whole bar of soap is too much for 10 days as well as a tube of full toothpaste! Also pay attention to the materials: a glass jar is heavier than a plastic one … not to mention perfumes, gels or other! Do they really serve? And consider the quantity: consider that a lot of laundry can be washed and therefore reduced in number. Always remember that “the grams make the pounds” and that sharing things … lightens everyone! Bring practical, unattractive, covering, simple and suitable for “camping life” and mountain climate …

Furthermore, life in the mountains is not something to improvise and to face “lightly”: having good equipment for adventure camp and all the necessary, at the best of functionality, is essential for the safety of all participants and the lack of equipment of the requested material may lead to non-participation in the trek. We therefore recommend that you bring everything listed below with you … We remind you that the Management does not assume responsibility for the lack of clothing or equipment required for the proposed field. Here is what you need to bring with you, and the recommended maximum weights, to better enjoy the experience of the Master Camp:
