WHAT TO BRING:

  • Food and beverages (alcohol is allowed after work hours)
  • Sleeping bag, sleeping pad and pillow
  • Tennis shoes, lightweight hiking shoes or water shoes to protect your feet from thistle. Teva-like shoes are great for wet areas- you will be hiking through pools of water. So bring both kinds of shoe.

  • Personal toilet articles
  • Swimsuit
  • Comfortable work clothes (remember you will be picking up wet and dry trash, bring clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty). Bring enough clothes for layering to insure comfort.
