Phew! You made it through the lottery and registration and you've received your confirmation email. Now that that's out of the way - you might be wondering what’s next? There are still a few critical things you need to do to prepare for your trip in the immediate future:
REVIEW YOUR PACKING LIST
While specific gear related to your trip will be provided (kayaks, canoes, etc.), some of your own gear must be purchased and packed by you. For your comfort and safety (and the comfort and safety of your fellow TREKkies), you will need all of the required items on this list. When you arrive for check-in, TREK Leaders will check your equipment and you will be asked to obtain any missing items prior to leaving for your trip.
Adventure Trips (PDFs)
It is our goal to make equipment available to those who need it. After reviewing the packing list for your trip please submit the gear request form for equipment that you need to borrow. Please note that equipment is limited. Priority will be given on a first-come, first-served basis and to those receiving financial assistance. You can find the link to this form in your confirmation email.
CHECK YOUR E-MAIL(S)
All future correspondence about TREK will be through the e-mail address(es) you provided during your registration. This includes any requests for supplemental materials, TREK financial support notifications, and move-in logistics. We will also be sending a copy of these e-mails to your UVM email account. All official UVM communications will be sent to your UVM account - so starting to check it now is a great habit to get into.
