Last Minute Checklist and Schedule / by Scott Burks

IMPORTANT NOTES:

**week 1: wear tennis shoes on plane because we will go straight to the mountain

**both weeks: bring your own breakfast food/bars, pop tarts, etc…this will save money and make breakfast easier while we are there.  The breakfast we would be served would be very light anyway, so this will ensure that everyone has something they like and will eat to start the day.

**both weeks girls: one-piece bathing suits for safety

Pack enough clothes to allow for two sets a day if possible.  Sandals are fine around the orphanage unless you plan to play soccer…then you want to make sure you have tennis shoes to wear.

Bring a trash bag to put your dirty clothes in and some type of face wipe to clean your face since we won’t be able to wash our faces in with the water.

$100-$150 cash - small bills (1’s and 5’s are best)

PASSPORT with two copies (we should already have one copy)  Keep the original in your personal bag that stays with you, and put the copy in your checked bag.

You may also want to bring a hat, sunglasses, snacks, and hand sanitizer.
