DO NOT BRING THE FOLLOWING!:
Knives or weapons, of any kind
Fishing gear
Aerosol spray cans of insect repellent or other materials
Snacks, candy or food
Money, expensive watches, jewelry, or other valuables
Illegal drugs or alcohol
Cell phones, electronic games, devices or music players

EQUIPMENT
Wilderness School will provide all outdoor equipment needed for the Expedition, including your backpack, sleeping bag, rain jacket, water bottles,
and group gear such as tarps to sleep under and cooking gear. Please do not bring any of your own outdoor equipment, as you will be required to
use equipment provided by the Wilderness School.
NO SMOKING
There is no smoking or use of tobacco products allowed at the Wilderness School or during any of its programs. If you smoke, plan to cut down and
stop before the course begins. If you cannot quit smoking, we recommend you address your use of tobacco and re-apply to Wilderness School at
another time.
HYGIENE
Your instructors will teach you how to keep clean in the woods. Soap will be provided during course for washing up. Baby wipes are also helpful for
cleaning up quickly. For females, it is necessary to bring plenty of maxi pads and/or tampons. As all feminine hygiene products must be carried out
of the campsites, aluminum foil and extra zip lock bags can help you to be discrete when disposing of feminine products.
RESUPPLY
Clean clothing and supplies will be separated on day one and given out mid-way through the expedition. Please bring two sets of travel sizes of all
hygiene products as well as extra bug repellent, sunscreen and feminine hygiene supplies.
WARM CLOTHING
You will need to bring warm clothing to the Wilderness School. Wool, polypropylene, and other synthetic fabrics such as nylon, polyester, Orlon and
non-cotton fleece are essential because they will keep you warm when they are wet. They also allow for ventilation and will dry easier. Cotton
clothing retains water and will not provide adequate insulation when wet. Your comfort and safety requires proper clothing. The Wilderness School
can answer any questions you may have on this and can supplement the clothing list with wool or fleece items and can provide fleece tops, pants
and hat as needed.
MAIL
If you wish to send mail, bring writing paper or postcards, stamps (peel and stick are best), envelopes and a pen. To receive mail, have family and
friends use the address below. Please do not have packages of any kind sent to you, as they will be held until graduation.
