To avoid the loss of valuables, we strongly suggest that the following items remain at home: cell phones, video games, computers, portable music devices, and other expensive electronics. The Pali Institute staff will confiscate all of the previously listed items upon your child’s arrival. In particular, cell phones are not permitted at Pali as reception is almost non-existent and we find it distracts from the learning environment. As mentioned in the Important Information section, your child will not be permitted to call home during their visit. Also, we cannot guarantee any of these items’ safekeeping and will not replace them if lost.
Please do not pack aerosol cans or any flammable items. Any food, candy, and electronic devices will be collected upon arrival, as we do not allow these items in cabins. We have found that students do not need more items than what is listed on the packing list above.
*During cold weather months, there is a good chance of rain, snow, or both. Located at 6,400 feet above sea level, Pali experiences colder weather and more intense sun radiation than its surrounding areas. We can get snowstorms as early as October and as late as mid-April. Even when our days are warm and sunny, our evenings are guaranteed to be chilly if not cold. Because your child will be spending most of their time outdoors, please help them pack the appropriate layers indicated on the packing list. A warm student is a happy student! Even during the coldest of weather, we experience stronger UV rays at our elevation and recommend sunscreen and sunglasses year around. Pali Institute recommends checking the weather forecast frequently prior to your visit. The weather can change drastically from day to day, and we want to ensure that your child is properly prepared.
