Items to Keep in Mind 


Pack the following in a small suitcase for the hotel: Enough clothes for three days, toiletry items and snacks. Suitcases are stored in the luggage compartment beneath the passenger section of the motor coach. They are not accessible to the students until we check into the hotel Monday evening. Do not put any items in the suitcase that may be needed before we arrive at the hotel on Monday evening.

  • Pack items the first day in a small carry-on bag to bring on the bus (snacks/lunch, phone, camera, reading material)

  • Bottles of water with closed tops  and snacks are allowed on the motor coach.

  • Soft Drinks (or any colored or carbonated beverages), ice cream, and coolers are not permitted on the bus.

  • Bring reading materials. Electronic devices, included cell phones, are only allowed with headphone attachments.

  • Do not wear new shoes! We will be doing lots of walking and they will get dirty. 

  • Bring suitable clothing for the weather conditions (dress in layers), including rain.

  • An older, small pillow or blanket will make the ride more comfortable. 

  • It is not recommended to bring valuable items. Cameras are allowed. 

  • Spending money for snacks, souvenirs, etc, should be minimal. Carry money safely on your person at all times!
