What to Bring
T-Shirts – Bring several that you don’t mind getting dirty. Please do not bring shirts with statements, logos, graphics, or pictures of companies, bands, or other entities that represent ideals that are in conflict to Christian values.
Shorts – Bring athletic/hiking shorts that you don’t mind getting dirty. Do not bring short shorts. You will be wearing harnesses, which will rub your skin if your shorts aren’t long enough.
Shoes – Hiking/athletic shoes are necessary. Do not bring new shoes. Bring a back-up pair. If it rains, we’ll keep playing. Closed- toed shoes are required. Do not bring flipflops for your main shoe, but do bring them for around the dorm room and showers.
Socks and Underwear – Bring extras of both. It’s Adventure Camp!
Rainwear – A rain jacket/poncho will be the most important of these items.
Hat / Bandana
Swimsuit – We suggest bringing two swimsuits to rotate. You might get wet every day. You may also have to hike in your swimsuit at times. Ladies One pieces or tankini (with full coverage). Shorts for swimming are also a good idea. No bikinis.
Jacket / Long Sleeves – It gets cold in the mornings and evenings in the mountains!
Jeans / Long Pants – For adventure and for staying warm in the mornings/evenings.
Nice Casual Clothes – Nothing too nice. It could get dirty. But you may want to dress decent once or twice while here.
Not So Nice Clothes – Please bring a few pairs of shoes and clothing that could get ruined. Each year, we have activities where you will get muddy, wet, painted, etc. Your shoes and clothes are likely to get wet and we want you to be as comfortable as possible.

Tote or Toiletries Bag – To take your items to and from the shower.

Spending Cash – You don’t have to have any for camp, but we do have a Camp Store and Coffee Shop if you’d like to buy something from those retail locations.
