Don’t get carried away with how much you bring. We will be washing your clothes for you over the weekend. You will probably need less clothing than you think. As you are packing, keep in mind there will be limited storage/closet space. Some of the bunk beds have been made with extra space underneath (20” to be exact). Regardless of the type of bunk you end up with, it works well to bring a tub or trunk (20” or less in height) to store stuff underneath or near your bed.
- Clothing for physical activity.
Clothes you can sweat and work comfortably in (there will be work crew projects each day). Keep it modest. No short shorts or 2 piece swimsuits, etc.
- Clothes that can get paint on them
- 2 pairs of long pants for work crews.
Jeans or similar are best. No leggings.
- Nice casual clothes
Bring some nicer casual clothes for regular chapel/dressier clothes for Friday night testimony services.
- Appropriate shoes for each activity
Sturdy, closed-toe shoes for work projects that can get dirty /painted, creek shoes/sandals, extra shoes if primary pair is wet, shoes for hiking.

We’ll be taking care of washing your dirty laundry on the middle weekend of your session. You’ll receive a NLR laundry bag at the beginning of the session to help with this process. You only need one week’s worth of clothes.
