Dress your child for varying conditions. It could be sunny and very warm or very rainy and very cold. We spend time outdoors! What your child wears and packs each day is a major component to their overall experience at the Academy. Children should arrive dressed in comfortable sneakers or hiking shoes and comfortable athletic clothing. A baseball cap and/or sun hat should be worn or packed in their backpack (see below). Sunglasses on a leash (croakie) is a good idea too.
