What to bring

Outdoors 101

Recommended Packing List for Outdoors 101 Program

You will be staying in one of our residential colleges for two nights of the program. For nights spent on campus, you will need to provide your own sheets, blanket, pillow, towels and washcloths. Bed sizes are Twin but XL will also work.

The last night of the program will be spent camping. Tents will be provided but you will be responsible for providing your own sleeping bag, air mattress, or cot to sleep on. If you own an ENO or hammock and would feel more comfortable sleeping in that, feel free to pack that instead but a hanging space cannot be guaranteed.

You will be outside for a large portion of the camp so be sure to bring cool, comfortable clothing and good walking shoes.

Clothes:

  • pajamas
  • comfortable shorts/t-shirts or athletic clothes
  • longer shorts (so straps of harness do not rub during ropes course)
  • clothes for evening activities (banquet…nice dress, khakis/polo) No suit/formal dress necessary
  • pants for hiking
  • sandals/flip flops
  • sneakers & socks (extra socks)
  • long pants/sweatshirt (just in case it is cool/muggy at night)
  • bathing suit/swim wear (swim towels)
  • athletic/closed toe shoes for walking/hiking/ropes course
  • hat

Basic Toiletries:

  • soap
  • shampoo
  • toothbrush & toothpaste
