Packing List - Cornerstone 2017

Packing List


Please bring clothing appropriate for camp (comfortable layers)! It will be warm in the sun and cool in the shade, and we’ll be outside (a few drops of rain won’t stop of from outdoor programming), inside (with some air-conditioned facilities), and camp cabins without heat for our overnight accommodations. Make sure to pack closed-toe shoes, and rain gear.  Linens are provided, but it does get cold at night so consider packing an extra blanket, sleeping bag and/or warm pajamas.


Dress code for the seminar is casual. However, please keep in mind that this is a professional development conference and you’ll be representing your camp community. Be aware that you may be asked to sit on the ground for some programming.

  • Shorts
  • T-shirts
  • Long sleeve t-shirts
  • Jeans or long pants
  • Warm pajamas
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Sweatshirt, coat, sweater, or fleece
  • Hat (with brim for sun protection)
  • Sneakers (comfortable for walking and that can get dirty)
  • Sandals
  • Bathing suit
  • Rain gear (poncho, raincoat, etc.)

Additional Necessities

There is an optional Overnight Experience that Fellows may choose to opt into during the Registration process. An additional packing list will be provided at the time of sign-up.

  • Toiletries
  • Toothbrush and Toothpaste
  • Bug repellent
  • Sunscreen
  • Reusable water bottle (Let’s reduce waste!)
  • Pen or pencil (you’ll get a snazzy Cornerstone one, but it’s always a good to carry a spare)
  • Sunglasses
  • Flashlight

Suggested (Non-Essential) Items

Cornerstone is a great opportunity to share your talents, be creative, exchange ideas, and trade best practices. Consider bringing some of these:

  • Song books from your camp
  • Musical instrument (drums, guitars, etc.) (You’ll have a chance to jam…)
  • Favorite games
  • Camera

Jewish Ritual Items

There will be time in the program for those who have a practice of daily prayer and saying grace after meals.  We will have a limited number of benchers and prayer books available. If you prefer to pray with a specific siddur, please, BYO-Siddur! If you wear or use a kippah/yarmulke, tallit, tefillin, or other ritual garment, please bring your own. We will not have access to these religious items.


FJC will not be responsible for the cost of checked baggage. We suggest that you pack your items so they will fit in one carry-on bag. For additional details, see our Travel Policy.
