Because space is limited in the sleeping rooms, everything but your sleeping bag and camping pad or air mattress should fit in one duffel bag or suitcase. Please check the local weather forecast for the community you are visiting to help you know how to pack.
Twin air-mattress, or camping pad
Personal Hygiene Items (deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, sunscreen, deodorant, deodorant, etc...)
Reusable Water Bottle
Spending money (gas stations and souvenirs)
Phones will be allowed during travel times and just a few minutes before bedtime. Student phones will not be taken to work sites or used during free time. Consider leaving your phone at home. Inappropriate phone usage will result in immediate confiscation, no exceptions.
Medications must be in their ORIGINAL PACKAGING or prescription bottle. Trip leaders will collect and keep all medications secure and will only dispense as directed. If you have concerns about your students medical needs, please make sure they are clearly defined in the medical portion of the registration.
Tennis Shoes or Work Boots (2)
You can bring sandals too, but to keep your feet safe, you’ll need a pair of closed-foot shoes that completely covers your feet. Bring footwear that you don’t mind getting dirty or wet at service sites and that you can wear in the kitchen.
Modest Shorts or Pants (7)
Not sure if that’s your shorts? We ask that all shorts have a minimum of a three-inch inseam. Bring a pair of long pants if think your group might do yard work.
Shirts with Sleeves (7)
They don’t have to be long sleeves and you can roll them up anytime. If you think you’ll get cold, bring long sleeves
During the week your clothes may endure paint, sweat, mud and lots of love from children! Bring clothes that you
can work and play hard in.
If your YouthWorks week includes a swimming activity, please make sure you bring modest swimwear:
Guys: Please follow the shorts policy above
Ladies: Please bring a one-piece swimsuit or a tankini that fully covers your torso
If you are bringing a bathing suit for additional privacy in
the shower, two-piece suits are ok.
Please DO NOT BRING…
• Tank tops or sleeveless shirts
• Short shorts
• Clothing that reveals undergarments, midriffs or chests
• Tight-fitting clothing
• Clothing with obscene, vulgar, abusive or discriminatory language or images
• Attire that represents hate groups, contains threatening language or is gang-related
• Apparel that promotes alcohol, chemicals, tobacco or any other product illegal for use by minors
• Blow dryers, curling irons or straightening irons
* Because shower time is short and because many of our housing sites do not have the power to run all of these
small electronics at one time, we ask that you do not bring them.
• Electronic devices, too much cash or other valuables.
* These items can distract you from others during the week and may be susceptible to theft.
*YouthWorks is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
We don’t want something as simple as clothing to hurt your opportunity to form incredible connections with other church groups on the trip or our friends in the community. Instead, we want to honor those relationships by avoiding attire that could possibly conflict with their cultural or organizational norms. Because space is limited in the sleeping rooms, everything but your sleeping bag and camping pad or air mattress should fit in one duffel bag or suitcase. Please check the local weather forecast for the community you are visiting to help you know how to pack.
