What to Bring
You won't exactly be roughing it, but if this is your first trip to Camp Nerdly, here is a list of useful stuff:
- A sleeping bag and pillow (You'll be provided with a bare mattress and a bunk in a rustic cabin.)
- Practical layers -- since the event is in mid-May, it can be anywhere from freezing to broiling, sometimes both in one day!
- A rain jacket or poncho
- Camping dinnerware: a fork, knife, spoon, mug/cup, plate and bowl (Paper and plastic stuff will be provided, but bringing your own helps cut down on waste.)
- Insect repellent
- Flip-flops to wear in the shower
- A towel
- A flashlight
If you are coming from far away by airplane, let the organizers know and they can probably round up sleeping bags and other such necessities for you.
Also: Pencils, paper, dice, a game prepped to run, a camera.
