EXPLO NewYork SUMMER PACKING LIST (1 of 2)
For All Students
□ □ Sports Equipment EXPLO provides all the athletic equipment you’ll need during the summer, with the exception of mouthguards and soccer cleats. We strongly recommend that mouthguards be worn for a variety of sports, and it is best if you bring a pre-fitted mouthguard with you from home. Soccer cleats are highly recommended, but not required, for participation in the soccer workshop and clinic. Feel free to bring your own racquets, gloves, shin guards, etc., though EXPLO will provide these. □ □ Closed-Toe Shoes For all athletic activities, cooking, and some science and performing arts classes, closed-toe shoes are required. We recommend that every student come to EXPLO with a pair of sneakers.
□ □ Musical Instruments If you enjoy playing, we encourage you to bring your instruments to share your music with students and staff. There are numerous opportunities throughout the summer to share your talents. □ □ Costumes A summer at EXPLO will have plenty of opportunities to dress up. Wigs, masks, full outfits – bring what you’ve got if you can. □ □ Fans The dormitory spaces are not air conditioned, so we recommend bringing a desk or stand fan. A limited selection of fans will be available for purchase from the campus bookstore if packing one is prohibitive.
