    Hint, if she actually tells them she doesn't want to go then they will remove her from the list...

    If it's the activities week just bring clothes, pyjamas,shoes, water bottle, first aid kit, phone, toothbrush, soap, suncream etc.

    I would also recommend bringing a swimsuit too just in case the showers are bad and loads of snacks because you never know what the food will be like.
    Also bring flip flops in case the showers and bathroom were dirty, comfy shoes to wear inside and trainers in case you go somewhere muddy.

    If your going somewhere muddy or dirty it's also worth bringing 2 extra sets of clothes and bring things that are easy and comfy to wear like a hoodie and t-shirt.
