Clothing
No Colloquium events require business or more formal attire. Cool, casual clothing and comfortable walking shoes are appropriate for all activities. Shorts and jeans are fine.

Appropriate swimwear is required in the pool and court shoes on the courts. Closed-toe shoes and appropriate attire are required on the climbing wall and on some of the tours and special interest sessions.

Please be sure to pack any prescription or non-prescription medication and sun block. Please inform us of any special needs regarding medications.
