What to bring

Evenings can be cooler in mid September in the upper Midwest, so bringing at least a few articles of warm clothing may be warranted.

At the same time, days can be very warm, so clothes appropriate for summer are also a good idea. Think layers.

Don’t forget to pack your class necessities as well. You can find them on the Classes Page
