  • Bring your own towels and toiletries.
  • Bring a snack with you for the group cookies, cupcakes, chips, etc.
  • Do not bring homework, radios, watches etc. Activities on the weekend take up almost all of our time; there will be little time left to study.
  • Bring jeans, sweatshirts, socks, comfortable shoes, sweaters, and jacket. Well be outside often and it can be cool (we do sleep in heated cabins). Bring a rain poncho or umbrella, just in case. And a flashlight is helpful too. (Don't worry, there is indoor plumbing!)
  • Label valuables with your name and phone number in case they get lost.
