Pigeon Point Packing List

The weather on the coast is likely to be quite variable. We may experience warm, sunny days, dripping fog, chilly evenings, rain, or a combination of them all! Those students who are well prepared for all types of weather will be the most comfortable and best able to enjoy their experience at Pigeon Point. Clothing that is comfortable, warm and functional is much more important than stylish outfits. Please follow the list below closely, as it has been compiled after many years of programs. Please limit your luggage to one sleeping bag, one suitcase or duffel bag, and one day pack. Please be sure to label everything!
