Packing Lists

We want to make sure that parents and students are prepared for the Mountain Lab School experience.  Before making the trek into the mountains, make sure you pack all required items as listed in one of the links below.

Important Note about Food Allergies and Special Diets

IdRaHaJe is a completely nut free facility. If any participant needs a gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, or vegan diet, our kitchens can accommodate these with at least two weeks advance notice and for an additional fee of $2/meal. Please select this option during online registration. If a participant has dietary restrictions that go beyond the scope of what our kitchens can provide, please contact our Food Service Supervisor at at least two weeks prior to arrival at IdRaHaJe.

If you do not want to pay an additional fee, you can pack your own substitutes for meals. Please clearly communicate that plan on your online registration and email our Food Service Supervisor at to receive a menu.


I notice you are a Christian ministry.  Are public schools and non-religious groups able to come, and will they be proselytized for the Christian faith while there?

We gladly welcome non-religious schools and educational groups to participate in our outdoor education programs; we have been serving public school groups for over 35 years. For such groups, we do not teach curricula from a Christian perspective or openly proselytize.  However, it is important for all guests to understand that IdRaHaJe is a religious organization and operates consistent with its mission, values and doctrinal statement. While IdRaHaJe serves all types of school groups through the Mountain Lab School, the programs, facility usage and educational practices will not contradict IdRaHaJe’s stated beliefs.  Our goal is to provide an engaging outdoor educational experience characterized by excellence, respect and exceptional customer service.
