Adventure Camp Gear List

**Please note that this particular Adventure Camp is not in session for the coming summer. If you are interested in its revival for upcoming summers, please send your inquiries to




The North Shore of Superior can have extremely variable weather—sunshine, rain, wind, fog, cool temps (often all of these during a single day) so please pack with wool or synthetic layers in mind. Cotton clothing provides no protection from either mosquitos or the rain and we will be out in the elements regardless of what nature throws our way. We will be doing quite a bit of hiking along the Superior Hiking Trail so lightweight trail shoes are a good option (athletic sneakers work fine here). We also have limited space, so please try to stick to this list to keep the amount of personal gear small. Please let us know if you have any questions or if there is any gear on this list that you do not have and we can try to find loaners. Please DO NOT bring electronic gadgets such as Ipads or smartphones.  Music players are ok but will be left at camp during activities. If it isn't on the list, don't bring it!
