What to Bring

We’ve provided a downloadable list that will help you assemble personal gear for your activities during the RMH program.

It may seem there is more than needed, but mountain weather is very unpredictable. You should also pack additional personal clothing, e.g. underwear, shorts, jeans, pants, tee shirts, etc. for casual activities while at camp.

While at Spring Canyon, you will stay at Camp Buxton in 10-person framed tents. The tents are each equipped with 5 sets of bunk beds and have a gravel pad floor. Showers and restrooms are available in a nearby bathhouse. Limited laundry facilities are available at Camp Buxton. Bring the items you need but remember space in the tents is limited.

On the trek, you will carry your own gear plus a few pounds of food and common gear like pots/pans/tents. Spring Canyon will provide all gear for cooking and eating. You will not be able to bring all of the items on this list on trek.

As noted, some of the items are for your comfort while at base camp. A separate packing list for trek is available at the end of this document, and should be reviewed in conjunction with this list.

Temperatures may range from the mid-80s during the day to freezing at night. Rain and snow showers are probable, especially at high elevations. We DO NOT have much clothing to loan and no suitable rain gear, so while we don’t want you to buy items that you may never use again, it is important that you come prepared!! Cotton clothing, when wet, won’t insulate and actually draws away body heat, so you shouldn’t plan to use it as an insulating layer on the trek.
