You'll Want To Pack Some Stuff

I don’t know about you but packing stresses me out!!! However, we thought we would make it easy for you by giving a list of things to bring. This course is a split weekend course so you don’t need to worry about packing the whole bedroom.  Just 3 days at a time. Don’t be that person!!

When we get done with Day 3, you’ll have the opportunity to take home the same shirt you’ve been wearing for 3 days and give it a good wash. In fact….we recommend you do.

Whatever you do….
