Before you even get to North Field, chances are good that you’ll stop at Walmart. There, first-timers are responsible for buying their own camp chairs (everyone else’s are stored in the old barn, along with some basic cooking and camp equipment), and everyone goes hard on the camo selection. Proper clothing is of paramount importance to survival. A “Spring Break Jacket” can be found in the back of your closet, at GoodWill, or at Walmart. It should be weatherproof, hooded, and not missed if it dives into the fire on the last night. Aside from your outer layer, bring as much fleece as possible—onesies are incredibly warm and also stylish. Do be aware that everything you wear around the campfire will leave North Field with burn holes in it, so don’t bring that new Patagonia. Bring two hats: one for sailing, and one for sleeping, as most nights you will be sleeping as bundled up as humanly possible.
