The Clothing and Gear list is the result of many years of staff and participant feedback. Please read and follow these suggestions and the check list closely. 

Optional Items

FOR SEA KAYAKING COURSES ONLY: 1 water bladder with bite-valve (Platypus, MSR). Hydration backpacks are not recommended.

It's nice to go light, but many past students also recommend bringing the following items:

  • Crazy Creek camp chair (AVOID camp chairs with metal parts or legs, as these do not work well in a marine environment)
  • Camera (with extra batteries and memory card or extra film)
  • Nylon shell windbreaker
