The ASCENT Packing List

The packing list seems like a simple thing but forgets one little item and now you have a big problem.  So here is our list.  Each church/group might add or change some of these items.  But it is our recommendation that these items be considered when packing for ASCENT.  The temperature most likely will be 80/90’s during the day and 60’s at night.  IMPORTANT: The camp DO NOT provide bedding, only a mattress.  So plan on bringing a pillow plus a sheet/blanket or sleeping bag. 

There are tons of water activities so make sure you bring a swimsuit and towel!


  • Clothes for 4 days (temp will be upper 80’s)
  • One pair of “hiking” clothes if you pan on hiking
  • Pair of gym shoes (for various games or hiking)
  • Jacket/Hoodie (it gets cold at night)
  • Sunglasses (optional)
  • Swimsuit (must be appropriate)

  • Pillow
  • Sheet & blanket OR sleeping bag
  • Mattress cover (optional)
  • Fan (optional)
