Popular choices for this shoe include:  

  • Croc-type sandals
  • Keen sandals  

Flip-flops, slides, aqua socks, diving booties, or other soft/neoprene-type footwear are NOT appropriate. 

Sneaker, Tennis Shoe or Running Shoe: A sneaker, tennis shoe or running shoe is used for times when you won’t need hiking boots but do need a sturdy, closed toe shoe. Examples include running, group problem solving activities or camp chores. This shoe does not need to be brand new.
