SAMPLE PACKING LIST

We recommend writing your last name on/inside all of your items to prevent them from getting lost or confused with someone else's. You will be living in close quarters, so there is no room for extra gear. Except for your sleeping bag, you must be able to fit all your gear in a duffle bag roughly 36” x 14".

Below is a sample packing list. You will receive the one specifically for your adventure when you register.
