  • Portable fire pits - 1 ea. / circle - note: must be completely clean & removed upon exit.

    • BRING YOUR OWN WOOD if you plan on independent Circle Fires / Fire Pits

  • Your Aventure Guides vests, hat, staff, circle banner, drum, and any other circle or nation symbols.

    • Vest glue to attach patches from past events as well as this event.

  • NOTE: Swimsuits are optional - there will be NO open swim this year.

    • ONLY needed if you plan on doing the Polar Bear Plunge -- Dads and Daughters welcome

  • Snacks and drinks to share: remember, active campers can get dehydrated - bring LOTS of water to drink.

    • Coolers and ice, there is not a source of ice on the grounds - must pack-in any ice.

  • Commuter cups to reduce waste and spills - and hiking / waterbottles are recommended.

  • Radios / camp tunes - be responsible here - usually a small ~ medium boombox w/ Bluetooth music is ok.

  • Cash to make purchases at the Camp Store (various items, alt. patches, t-shirts, hats, bandanas, etc.)

Stuff NOT to Bring:

  • Weapons of any kind - small camping knives are ok, but no machetes, swords, crossbows, firearms, etc.

  • Fireworks of any kind - remember we wil be in a relatively dry wooded area - we do NOT need to be the source of a California wildfire.

    • Please leave all firemaking of any kind to the Circle Naturalists (your Circle Fire guy) and the Nation Naturalist.

  • Tents - unless you intend on NOT staying in your assigned cabin and prefer to sleep in a tent - then you will not need this.

  • Large grills - these should not be necessary / advise against.

  • Excessive noise makers - like crowd control bullhorns and other loud devices like air horns.

  • Huge PA systems, or outdoor stereos (e.g. greater than 100W and/or speakers larger than 5").
