What To Bring 

Please label all of your child’s items with their name and a phone number to reach you, in case they get lost, they may be returned to you as soon as possible. Please be aware that during Saturday Adventures, children will be expected to self carry all of their gear (except an extra change of clothes if provided) which we may keep in the van. Their backpack should be comfortable and not have any extra toys or materials making them too heavy to carry. Good Life Girls will have extra water, sunscreen, and bug spray available. During overnight camping trips, we will be car camping and will have all gear close to the camp spot and girls will not need to self-carry camping gear a far distance. Please feel free to contact us directly (970.279.1173 or info@goodlifegirls.com) with any questions or concerns!
