- Sheets – size determined by where you are staying (you should soon receive an email indicating the size of your bed in your lodging). All beds are the old style, thin mattress – no super thick ones (except some in the cabins – they may be thicker).
- Blankets (night temperatures often dip into the low 50s, upper 40s). Electric blanket, if you prefer
- OR bring a sleeping bag instead of, or in addition to, sheets and blankets
- Pillow and pillow case
- Towels & washcloths
- Optional: a towel for waterfront activities
CLOTHING (below are suggestions – bring what is best for you)
- We will be casual, so whatever is comfortable for you, shorts, jeans, chinos, tee-shirts, golf shirts, open collar shirts… Do bring a mix of warm weather and cool weather attire.
- On Thursday, we will have a “Wear your home band attire or any other musical garment” day. Obviously, this is optional, but if your band has a shirt or you have a trumpet tie/scarf or a music tee-shirt, or a pair of pants covered in French horns, consider bringing it to wear on Wednesday!
- Sweatshirt/sweater/vest/jacket for potentially chilly evenings.
- Foot wear: sneakers or whatever is comfortable for your feet is fine for most days. A pair of waterproof shoes/boots is a good idea for when we have rain
- Concert Dress (see below)
- Rain jacket, rain hat and/or umbrella
- Swimsuit if you plan to swim
- Don’t forget your PJs!
BE AWARE … There are NO LAUNDRY FACILITIES on camp. There is a laundromat in Oakland (about a 15 minute drive down the road).
- White shirt/blouse and long black pants or long black skirt. No shorts and no short skirts; it doesn’t look uniform to have bare leg showing. (FYI: Short skirts are never a good idea on a stage when your audience is down below!)
- If you wish, you may wear a splash of color, such as a scarf, tie, pin, belt…
- In case Friday is chilly and you get cold easily, it would a good idea to bring a white jacket or sweater, or layer with a white turtleneck under your shirt/blouse.
- Nice shoes, we prefer black, but don’t go buy new shoes for this! Ladies, no tall heels – they sink into the ground, are dangerous walking over the roots and they thump on the floor of the stage.
- No tuxes and no fancy dresses, please.
