What do I need to do before the course?

What is the dress code?

Dress for the week is casual. However, remember that many rehearsals and worship services occur in St. Stephen's Church or in King's College Chapel. Clothing should be appropriate for a sacred space. Appropriate clothing is clothing that sufficiently covers the body and is not disturbing in worship or rehearsals. Inappropriate clothing is anything low-cut or distracting. The Course Managers have final say in determining what is appropriate or inappropriate. If you are not sure about if something is appropriate, it probably isn't. Parents, please be involved with the packing process.

As for other clothing and things to bring, double check the seven-day forecast before you pack. It's usually hot and humid, and we always have rain. Weather in Wilkes-Barre can be very hot and very cool all in the same week (and sometimes on the same day). Do bring at least one pair of long pants or jeans and a sweater or jacket for the evenings. If it will fit in the suitcase and if it is to be very hot/rainy, try to send an extra outfit or two so the kids can change more frequently if they get caught in the rain.

Where do adults and young adults stay during the course?

The adults and young adults live in campus apartments. Each apartment has 3-4 separate bedrooms, a common area with kitchen, and shared bathrooms (usually one bathroom per two people). Past adult campers have identified some optional "extras" that adults may want to bring, depending on their personal preferences and need for creature comforts:
