What to Pack for Summit 2024

  • Sleeping bag and pillow.
  • A vegetable for the Stone Soup on Thursday (only if you are coming Thursday)
  • A warm coat – essential to ward off chilly nights or a windy day. Also bring a heavy sweater or a fleece jacket.
  • Rain gear – a raincoat, rain pants, rain boots and a hat. Workshops are outside- even when it is raining!
  • Comfortable clothes for outdoor activities.
  • Hiking boots or running shoes – essential for outdoor activities. The trails may be wet and slippery.
  • Several pairs of socks in case yours get wet.
  • Pyjamas
  • Indoor shoes/slippers – for alternative activities you may want to bring indoor shoes.
  • Toiletries – towel, facecloth, biodegradable shampoo/soap, toothbrush, toothpaste. Since shower space is limited, participants will be encouraged to wait to shower until they return home, however this is a choice and will not be enforced.
  • Flashlight – make sure you have fresh batteries!
  • Hat – essential for sunny days and perhaps to keep your head dry.
  • Gloves and a warm hat – it is Spring in Manitoba so the weather can be unpredictable and varies throughout the day. Be prepared and pack some warm stuff.
  • Sunscreen and mosquito repellent – may not be necessary but it is Manitoba so better safe than sorry.
  • Spending money if you would like to buy any Nature Summit swag we may have available. There is not a bank machine on site.
  • Re-usable coffee mug/water bottle – we have this thing for saving the earth…
  • Scrapbooks/photos for sharing your accomplishments/projects etc.
  • Musical instruments, song books and head lamps for jamming by the campfire!
  • Your camera – feel free to take pictures all weekend!
  • Lawn Chair or a yoga mat to sit on around the campfire or in your workshop
  • Sweets/Soda Pop/Snacks-bring anything you might want to eat between meals. Beverages at meal-time are mainly water, coffee, tea and sometimes juice.
