Water bottle
Journal/pencil/bullet: I will provide these for each student. We will make journal covers later.
Small Bible

Other needs:
Parents willing to help out with Expo until the students arrive to take over (9a.m.-12p.m.). We need at least four.
Camp stove: we could use one more, to boil water
Tents: four have been offered. I'd like two-three more just to be safe
