What To Bring
You must pack as lightly as possible due to space limitations. Bring only one duffel or backpack and a small "carry on bag" if necessary. Plan to wear layers of clothing as the weather tends to change very quickly with little warning. A good rule of thumb is don't bring anything that you would be devastated to lose. This would include any jewelry or personal items which may be near and dear to your heart. This is only a guideline, different trips/projects might require different items. Your leader will be able to tell you of any differences. Please also take cultural differences into consideration when selecting clothing (if applicable).
