          Hello, could some one give me some advice on clothing whilst staying at the Governors camp, please. We are a family of 3 (12yr child) & will be staying at the camp this August & was wondering do you need to change clothing for dinner in the evening. This would be useful to know as due to light packing requirements. Many thanks Sarah
