  3. Dress is casual throughout the week, with the exception of graduation on the last day of the institute.  Dress will be business casual for that day.  On the second day, you will participate in a challenge course, so you should pack closed toe shoes and a pair of older clothes (long pants preferred).

  5. All meals, lodging and materials are taken care of for you, so you won't need extra money.
