What should my student pack?
Consult our suggested packing list!

Should my student bring money?
The only thing your child needs money for will be their meals. They will need to purchase 8 meals in downtown Nashville, though we encourage delegates to bring granola bars, cereal, etc. to offset breakfast costs.
Students also have the option to purchase pizza each night for $10 a pizza, and we are selling Conference T-shirts and sweatshirts for $10 and $20 each.
