The ASCENT 2024 Packing List

A packing list might seem straightforward, but overlooking even a small item can lead to significant issues. Here’s our suggested list. Keep in mind, that individual churches/groups may modify or add to these essentials based on their needs. However, we strongly advise including these items for your ASCENT trip. Expect daytime temperatures in the 80/90’s and nighttime temperatures in the 60’s.
