    The first session of SLS begins on Friday and I was wondering if someone who went last year could tell me if there was anything they wished they would packed that isn't on the list, or anything they wished they packed more of. Thanks in advance!

    My son says more underarmour and socks than you think you need, and bring some laundry detergent for quick sink washing. Also bring whatever food you might want to have on your stomach before taking the CFA as it could be first thing in the a.m.

    Have a wonderful time!

    Also, during the CFA, do not gobble your water - instead, take short sips.

    I learned that the hard way... :yllol:

    My plane leaves Friday night, sorry for the confusion. CFA is first thing Sunday morning. The whole schedule is on the PDF labeled "Summer Leaders Seminar Instructions" in the portal.

    Belts and Extra Room

    What I wished that I had brought with me was a nicer belt. You will be tucking in the polo that you will be given into your pants, and I didnt have the nicest belt to wear. So, bring a nice brown leather belt! Also, leave enough room in your bag so that you can fit all of the clothes you will be getting!

    sheets/pillow /sleeping bag

    DS flying to SLS on Saturday. No sheets/pillow /sleeping bag are listed on packing list. Can anyone confirm that those are supplied?

    West Point DOES provide bed linens, blankets, and pillows. It is in the SLS instruction PDF.
