HIGH ADVENTURE NEEDS LIST

Typically High Adventures spend 5 days and 4 nights in an amazing environment. Be prepared to check out some of our favorite overnights we have visited over the last 20 years!

ALL PERSONAL GEAR SHOULD FIT INTO 1 LARGE DUFFEL! Calleva will bring all other gear including activity specific, camping, and all necessary safety gear.

MANDATORY (all high adventures and LIT)

  • sleeping Bag & sleeping Pad
    (we suggest lightweight 30deg bag & a closed cell or in ateable pad)
  • Proper shoes &/or boots
  • 4 pair synthetic socks
  • changes of underwear
  • bathing suit
  • 2 pair shorts & 3 non-cotton t-shirt
  • 1 pair long non-cotton pants and long sleeved shirt.
  • synthetic long underwear (top & bottom)
  • warm fleece top

OPTIONAL

  • $20 spending cash for snacks at gas stops
  • Camera: Calleva not responsible for lost or ruined electronics (no cameras on LIT trips).
  • Prescription Glasses and Contact lenses: Bring a backup pair if you think you need them.
  • Plastic Trash Bags: 2 large, extra heavy-duty, useful for waterproofing.
  • Watch: Water resistant and alarm are great.

THINGS NOT TO BRING

  • Cell phones and electronics. There is a high probability for loss and damage with these devices and they also take away from the social experience of camp. Calleva does not take responsibility for water damage, impact damage or loss of electronics (including cell phones). While we understand that cell phones are a great way to stay in touch, we have found that it is more of a handicap than benefit to your camper. Our instructors and counselors carry emergency cell phones and parent phone numbers with them at all times. If your child becomes ill during camp, we will get in touch with you. We do not allow any electronic games, music players, or other electronics during day camp or overnights.
