WHAT TO BRING

The Green Mountains are famous for unpredictable weather. It may be hot, sunny, rainy, cold, humid, wet or dry. Night time temperatures can be below freezing, even in August.
Come prepared.

We require a negative rapid covid test result, within no more than 24 hours prior to first camp day.

 Bring several rapid covid tests per person. We may ask that everyone test at several points during the week.  If you have symptoms or feel unwell, we require that you test while at camp.
Bring a few KN94 or 95 masks per person.
Our site is remote and not close to drugstores.
Directions will be emailed to all registered campers on August 10.  It is a good idea to download and print driving directions in advance. Cell service very spotty in the Green Mountains.

 

FOR SLEEPING

Sheets/blankets/sleeping bag
Pillow
Sleeping pad/air mattress – mattresses are provided in cabins - but are thin
Tent, if you are tenting or think you may tent. Please note: no vehicles in the tenting field other than AWD cars or vans. If it is wet or very rainy, vehicles will get stuck here.

Mosquito Netting - some people bring netting for their individual bunks in cabins.

 

CLOTHING

Clothes for warm and cold weather. Think layers. VT weather is changeable (90 degree days/32 degree nights)
Warm socks, hat, gloves
Good walking shoes (we really mean it – camp is hilly/paths are rocky and can be slippery)
Close-toed shoes (we really mean it, a must for required kitchen work shifts)
Sandals or flip-flops for showers
Rain gear; rain boots; umbrella or two! one to share!
Bathing suit – our waterfront is clothing optional
 

VARIOUS IMPORTANT SUPPLIES

Reusable water bottle – all water at any spigot on site is delicious/clean
Sunscreen and hat – much of our time is spent outdoors
Camp chair and/or small blanket to sit upon
Towels  (PRO tip - bring a sarong - easier to carry than a towel/dries faster)

Cloth napkin or bandanna
Mug for coffee, tea, warm beverages
