Gear to Bring

April weather on Gibraltar is unpredictable and often cold, so check the weather forecast and dress accordingly in clothes that can get dirty. If it rains, we’ll still be working, which makes rain gear a must. Meals, bedding/pillows, and towels will be provided, but please bring toiletries. Rooms may not be heated. Housing is dormitory-style, including bunk beds.
