Field School Equipment

Most of the gear on this list would be great to have, but keep in mind that costs for equipment can add up. If this is the only time that you will be using this gear, buy only essential items, and see if you can borrow other equipment from friends or family members.
This is a four-week course, so keep comfort in mind. Even after a full day in the field, you will have a lot of camp time to use as you wish, so be sure to bring forms of entertainment, such as books, sporting equipment, instruments, crossword puzzles, or games. Please keep in mind that space may be limited, so check with instructors before bringing large items.
