What students should bring

We strongly recommend that students bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and plenty of water.

If any of the planned activities involve wading, they may also want to bring a towel and an extra pair of shoes to change into after the program.

Even though most students will not get their clothes wet, consider having them bring an extra set of clothes. The dry set of clothes comes in handy on rainy and cold days.
