What to bring to Southern Rockies Camp!
Layers of clothing and sunglasses - the weather can be cool and crisp to hot and sunny…all in one day. For your comfort, it’s best to bring layers so you can add or shed as the weather dictates. We are in the Rocky Mountains – we recommend that you bring a warm jacket.
Two pair of shoes – hiking or athletic/casual shoes for outside and another pair (or slippers) to wear inside. Depending on the weather, it could be muddy and we want to keep the lodge as clean as possible. You, of course, are not limited to 2 pair of shoes.
Warm Jacket – The outdoors are glorious here. A warm jacket, hat and gloves make it doable in any spring or fall weather.
Pajamas – warm pajamas are great for lounging around in your cabin.
Bedding & Towels – Bring a sleeping bag for campouts along with sheets and blankets for your bunk, towels/wash clothes
Personal items – Soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb/brush, deodorant, feminine supplies, fragrance, lotion, medicine (checked in w/ nurses station). At high altitude, the air is dry and everyone burns faster than they are used to, even tan people. In addition, we highly suggest lotion, sunscreen, lip balm, and eye drops (you’ll be kicking yourself if you leave these items at home). You might also like to have earplugs and Ibuprofen (or your headache reliever of choice).
Water bottle – at high altitude it’s important to drink water (we have very low humidity here). We will have a water stand available at all times for you to fill your water bottle, so please bring one with your name on it so we don’t drive the dishwasher to exhaustion!
Your camera – You will most likely take many pictures, bring a spare memory card or something to download pictures to. Don’t forget any necessary cables and battery chargers.
Flashlight – You may be walking from building to building (short distances) after dark, bring a flashlight.
Binoculars – optional, but nice to have if you are planning to walk or hike the grounds.
Batteries - we usually have some extra, and you can get them at the camp store, but if you use odd sizes, bring an extra set.
Some money – for shopping, we might have a store run!
Music – bring an ipod and earbuds if you want to listen to music during rest time.
