What You Should Bring

If you don't have your own gear, some gear is available through the club (first come, first serve, priority given to paid club members) or rent gear through VT's Venture Out. https://recsports.vt.edu/outdooractivities/rentals.html

Pet Instructions/Info

Preferably people who have camped with their dogs before would be okay. If this is your first time camping with your dog I'd recommend a practice overnight prior to this trip.
