Here are some of the items you should bring to the men’s retreat: First things first, make sure you bring a BIBLE to use for all the meetings. Other items include a pillow, a sleeping bag or blankets, clothes for recreation, a coat/sweatshirt for the cooler evening weather, a towel, and toiletries. There is also a camp store which has snacks, drinks, food items and we are also selling Men’s Retreat T-Shirts as well, so you might want to bring some spending money for some of those items.
