clothing should we bring?

Remember, think wet and dirty! Do not bring good clothing for most of
to view and print the suggested clothing list.
Is there a dress
Yes, of course. LAGITT has a
standard of dress, a “dress code” that we require. We feel that it is a reasonable
expectation due to the nature of our activities. In order to
help the girls feel the importance of where they are, and to have
them represent what we wish a LAGITT girl to look like, a
strict adherence to this code is necessary. We are confident
that these simple expectations will be followed.
Leave your jewelry,
makeup, and fancy clothing behind and come prepared to sing, dance, hike, laugh
and cry. It will be a month that you will never forget.
Do you require the
completion of a Medical and Release form?
Yes. The form can be view and printed

participants(through Shiloach). We have access to all
hospitals and private doctors in their system. They will
not, however, cover pre-existing conditions.

limit yourself to one large bag (weighing no more than 50 lbs.) Include a light

We will provide a LAGITT
t-shirt which MUST be worn at least 3 times during the tour; during both plane
