Sycamore Song Nature School
Required Clothing and Gear

Please send your child to Sycamore Song Nature School with
closed toe shoes & clothes that can get dirty.

An extra set of clothes will need to be brought to Nature School each day as we tend to get a little wet and muddy on our outings. Having dry clothes will make the ride home more comfortable and it might help keep your car a little cleaner!

Daily Clothing Considerations Include:

  • Jacket/Fleece
  • Socks
  • Closed Toe Shoes
  • Water Shoes

Appropriate clothing will ensure a great experience for your child. Sycamore Song will provide each child with an REI rain jacket, REI rain pants and Bogs boots. These items will stay in your child's Nature School bin. When experiencing cold weather, your child will need a warm coat, lined pants, gloves, and a beanie. Most of the time, lined pants and a fleece under good rain gear will be enough to keep your child comfortable. Good gloves and a beanie are essential.

Sycamore Song Nature School
Clothing and Gear Guide


Long sleeves
long pants

While it is not required, sending your child to Sycamore Song Nature School in a light weight, long sleeve shirt and light weight pants will help protect him or her from sun and bugs.

Second Hand Clothes

It is okay for your child to wear mismatched, stained, even holey cloths to Sycamore Song Nature School. However, baggy or "too big" clothes can hinder your child's play. Please ensure clothes fit well.


Rain wear

It is wet in Wilmington. Because of this Sycamore Song will provide rain gear for each child. If you are interested in researching reliable rain gear for your family outings, you can check out Oakiwear and REI.

rain/snow boots

Sycamore Song will provide a pair of insulated Bogs boots for each child. Bogs boots work well in rain and snow. If you would like to research reliable boot brands, you can check out Oaki and Bogs.


Winter Wear

It is important that winter jackets are made with synthetic fibers not down. Columbia and Obermeyer snow suits are both warm and reliable options. These brands can be bought at REI and Amazon.

beanies and gloves

Your child's beanie should fit well; it should not be too big. A good beanie can be purchased almost anywhere.

Your child must have one of 3 brands of gloves/mittens. Gordini, Obermeyer, or REI.

Doing an internet search for Gordini gloves will help you find the best price.

Because the comfort of your child is important, please let us know if you have questions about gear or if you need help providing appropriate gear for your child.
