1 pair of tennis shoes or closed toed hiking shoes (dry) *
1 pair sandals, river shoes, or old tennis shoes (wet)(flip-flops not acceptable for daily activities) *
Headlamp or small flashlight *
Swimsuit/s (one way or another we will play in the water each day) *

Toiletries (there are showers at the campsite for daily use)
Glasses/Contacts (if necessary, may want to bring extra pair as well)
Medicine (headache, anti-histamine, prescriptions*)
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)
PB&J: Pen, Bible, Journal *
Backpack for carrying things throughout the day like water bottle, lunch, PBJ, etc.
In addition to tents, food, cooking gear, and canoeing/climbing equipment we’ll provide the following for those that need it. If needed, check the spot on the registration form. If you have already registered then email Shane Seaton at firstname.lastname@example.org about your needs.
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 (UnderArmour, 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.
