What to bring: Sleeping bag, pillow, towel, toiletries, winter attire (sleds for sledding, snow pants, warm jacket, hat, mittens, boots, etc.), and (optional) money for shopping in the Campus Store.

Housing: Bethel students either host their younger sibling overnight in their own on-campus housing (if sibling is same sex as student) or arrange for appropriate on-campus housing with another student (if sibling and student are not same sex).
