    CAMP CLOTHES

    Any clothes that you find comfortable at home are great for camp. Shorts and a T-shirt or a casual skirt or dress for women are great for warm summer evenings. For cooler nights and mornings you may find prefer to wear light-weight pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Long-sleeved camp shirts can also double as a shirt to wear on the river to help keep the sun off of your arms.

    Warm Jacket: Even in the summer, evening and mornings can be chilly. You’ll want to have a layer to wear around camp before bed and at breakfast. It often it takes the sun longer to hit some camps due to the large canyon walls. We ask that you bring a light-weight puffy jacket or warm fleece shirt.

    Rain Gear: You never know if it’s going to rain, so bring a rainshell. This is also a great layer for colder temperatures. People will often wear rain pants to help keep the sun off their legs. Tops of knees are a common place for sunburn on the first day.

    Camp Shoes: These could be another pair of sandals, hiking shoes, or sneakers. Anything that is comfortable, gives your feet a break from being in a wet river shoe, and protects your feet from rocks while walking around camp.

    Hiking Shoes (Optional): Most people end up doing short day hikes in their river shoes. If you have a camp shoe that can double as a hiking shoe, you can save room in your bag.

    Make sure to break in your river shoes if you are buying new ones for your trip. Nothing is more annoying than fresh blisters while you’re on your vacation.

    RIVER CLOTHES:

    For your daytime river outfit, you'll want quick-drying clothes so that you don't feel soggy all day. Wearing shorts with a lightweight long or short-sleeved shirt are great. Long-sleeves help prevent sunburn.

    Some people also like to wear long under bottoms under river shorts or capri-length pants to help keep sun off of their legs. We suggest light weight base layers as they can help keep your warm if it is chilly, but also are great sun protection that isn't too hot.

    River Shoes: Anything that will stay strapped to your foot and provide solid support for walking around on rocks will work.
    Hat: A hat with a brim makes bright, sunny days more enjoyable and a baseball cap that fits under a helmet are perfect for paddling an inflatable kayak.

    COLD WEATHER GEAR (FOR SPRING TRIPS)
