BOLD Events Dress Code

With the nature of the events, this dress code helps to make sure that clothing is functional.  Please don't bring your favorite clothing (it WILL get dirty), but also please don't bring thread-bare clothing as the woods can cause snags in clothing easily. Please also leave at home favorite or sentimental jewelry, so there's no chance of it getting lost or broken. 

Ladies:

  • We require that pants and shorts have no holes above the knee, not be tight, and not be worn low. To check for tightness, pinch the sides of your pants and make sure there’s some wiggle room. Leggings, yoga pants, and skinny jeans are not allowed at these outdoor events.

 

  • To check shorts length, make an L with thumb and index finger and place at the top of knee when seated—shorts should be long enough to hit the thumb.  

 

  • Shirts should not be low-cut, tight, or revealing any midriff or cleavage. They need to be long enough to tuck in, or you need to have a camisole or tank top underneath to tuck in- some obstacles and activities will require this. T-shirts should be plain or have appropriate content on them. Shirts also must have sleeves.

 

Gentlemen: 

  • We require pants and shorts have no holes above the knee, not be tight, and not be worn low. To check for tightness, pinch the sides of your pants and make sure there’s some wiggle room.  Skinny jeans and tight joggers are not allowed at these events. 

  • Shirts should not have holes.  They should be plain or have appropriate content on them. Shirts should be loose-fitting, long enough to tuck in and have sleeves.​

Media Policy is relevant for Survival and ASAP.  

While we do use cell phones at A.I.D. for safety and logistics, we recommend limiting the extra use. 

 

Students will adhere to a media-free policy during the week of Survival and/or ASAP.  Our purpose is to be in the wilderness and media distracts from that.  Upon arrival at camp, students will turn in phones, iPods, tablets or any other media devices that they have with them to Survival staff.  They will receive them back upon leaving camp.  During the week, students are encouraged to call home and can do so using staff or parent cell phones. Parents can reach their students by calling Jenna or Curtis Whatley at any time.
