In addition to tents, food, cooking gear and tubing equipment, we can provide a sleeping bag, sleeping pad and hammock if needed. We will contact students a few weeks prior to the trip to find out who needs this equipment. If you have any questions regarding equipment needs, please contact the Recreational Life Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
