  • T-shirts (breathable or quick drying are more comfortable)
  • Light jacket or long sleeve shirt
  • Pants
  • Undergarments
  • Socks (dry-fit or wool is optimal)

  • Hat (optional)
  • Headlamp or small flashlight *
  • Swimsuit/s *
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Sunglasses (optional)
  • Reusable water bottle(s) (2-1 liter bottles is best) *
  • Toiletries (there are showers at the campsite for daily use)
    • Soap
    • Shampoo
    • Deodorant
    • Tooth brush/paste
    • Glasses/Contacts (if necessary, may want to bring extra pair as well)
    • Medicine (headache, anti-histamine, prescriptions*)
    • Towel
  • Sleeping Bag and/or Sheet (summer camping can be warm, so a cool sheet is nice on top of your sleeping bag) *
  • Sleeping Pad (optional)
  • Pillow (optional)
  • PB&J: Pen, Bible, Journal *
  • Backpack for carrying things throughout the day like water bottle, lunch, PBJ, etc.
  • Hammock (optional)

In addition to tents, food, cooking gear and tubing equipment, we can provide sleeping bag and sleeping pad on a first register, first serve basis. If needed, there is a place on the registration form to request these items. If you have already registered and need to make a change to your sleeping equipment needs, please contact the Recreational Life Department at reclife@obu.edu.

Note: The above are recommendations. In the world of camping, reusing the same shirt for a few days/weeks is always an option :) Items made out of synthetics (Under Armour, Capilene, nylon, etc.) will dry faster when wet so these are great for getting wet.

 


The items marked * are one’s that you should not ignore because it could greatly impact your comfort, health, or ability to participate.
