What to Bring to Eagle Bluff

We don’t want to scare you but it will be cold while we are at Eagle Bluff. Much of the winter clothing you have will work.

Most Important pieces of gear are:

  • Winter Boots
  • Warm Coat
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Warm Socks

If you don’t have winter boots, Eagle Bluff has a few pairs of nice winter boots that you can borrow anytime we go outside.

Sleeping Bags are helpful, but since we’ll be inside, sheets and blankets work too. We’ll also have extra sleeping bags for the students to use.  Please bring anything else you would normally need to be gone for 3 days—clothes, sleeping attire, toothbrush, etc.
