What to Bring to YBL Residential Program
Below is a list of what to bring to the Youth Becoming Leaders Institute. For information on what to bring to ImpactU one-week camps, click here.
We want to your YBL Instutite experience to be a positive one, so here’s how you can prepare.
First, let’s talk clothing: Think “everyday wear” – jeans, shorts, etc. for almost every day. You will want to have one “business casual” outfit for visiting a church. You should bring a swimsuit (one-piece for girls), as well as clothes for a canoe trip (river shoes, shorts, etc.). There’ll be time for sports, so bring athletic shoes. Here are some guidelines as you pack:
- ”Short shorts” and tank-tops are not allowed
- No underclothing should be revealed
- Clothing shall be free from offensive printing
- No sleepwear worn outside of dorm
- Shoes and shirts are required at all times
Okay, what about lodging? You’ll be staying in one of Asbury’s residence halls, but you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bag or bed linens and pillow. You’ll also need to provide your own towels and personal toiletry items. (Your fellow students will appreciate you taking a shower at least once.)
And one more thing: You’ll want to take notes and jot down ideas, so make sure to include a Bible, notebook & pens. We will also be sending you a short book to read before the YBL Institute, and please bring that along with you.
