**MEALS ARE NOT INCLUDED! BRING FOOD FROM HOME OR MONEY TO DINE OUT**

***Bring cash for snacks and drinks from vending machines**

***You have the option to pre-pay for meals or you can bring your own meals. All rooms have a full size refrigerator so bring any frozen dinners, fruits, water, cereal, milk, granola bars, energy drinks, anything you want to eat that doesn’t require a stove.

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO REMEMBER:

  1. Deodorant. Because it’s hot as concrete

  3. Twin Bedding + Pillow. Because. College Dorm. Thats. All.
  4. Gym Clothes for outdoor activities. MUST WEAR GYM SHOES + SOCKS
  5. Painting clothes. Unless you’re really careful with hand paints for art projects
  6. 2 Semi-formal dress pieces. (1 for the Fundraising Art Auction + 1 for Talent Show)
  7. Pool Attire + Sunscreen!!! Yes! We will have a pool party. 
  8. Anti-Prom Attire. The teens have spoken and they all agreed – regular prom sucks! Instead, let’s have our own prom where we can be who we want to be, at the “anti-prom” dance. Clothing showing inappropriate amounts of skin or vulgarity or hateful/hurtful slangs will not be tolerate.
