CAMP COURAGE CHECK LIST
Colorado’s mountain weather can be very changeable. You need to plan for ALL kinds of weather. Listed below is a list of things you will need! As you locate and pack these items, check them off this list!!
MAKE SURE YOUR NAME IS ON ALL OF YOUR THINGS!!!!
- WEAR THESE THINGS ON THE DAY OF THE TRIP:
_____ Warm jacket or coat
_____ Comfortable hiking boots and tennis shoes
_____ Long pants and long sleeved shirt (long underwear if it is very cold)
- TAKE THESE THINGS SEPARATELY FOR THE FIRST DAY:
_____ Snack (A granola bar, raisins, nuts, etc. Try to take natural things rather than candy.)
_____ Sack lunch (Don’t pack too much! Students seldom eat more than they usually do.) Do NOT pack carbonated beverages! Please pack water only for drinking.
_____ Day Pack (Use your own or borrow from Courage camp)
_____ Sun Hat
_____ A “No Leak” plastic bottle with a screw type lid (Do not freeze it!)
