Wild Roots FAQs

If we want our children to move mountains,
we first have to let them out of their chairs.

What clothing will my child need to wear or bring each day?

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. -Alfred Wainwright

Appropriate clothing that keeps children protected from the elements is critical to their comfort and well-being. Clothing needs will vary based on the season, but generally, they will need: 

  • Rain pants/rain suit or snow pants/snowsuit 
  • Outer jacket: rain jacket or snow jacket 
  • Fleece jacket 
  • Waterproof boots or comfortable sneakers 
  • Waterproof mittens 
  • Sun hat or winter hat 
  • Multiple layer options
  • A full extra change of clothing inside a zippered wet bag (In case of an accident—toilet or weather related—we will put the dirty or wet clothing into the zippered wet bag)
