Aviation Packing and Uniforms
 
Items with prices listed below may either be purchased on campus at the Campus Store, Uniform Department or brought from home.  Approximate prices are listed and are subject to change. We encourage debit/credit cards, however, money can also be deposited into the Personal Drawing Account for purchases at the Campus Store and Uniform Department. New campers are required to pay a Uniform Deposit, which is an estimate of the expenses each new camper will encounter for uniforms.  All students, new or returning, will need the following items below.  Campers are fitted for uniforms on registration day.
 
Uniform Items to Purchase at Culver

New Families: These items are included in the Uniform Deposit that is required of all new campers.
 
Returning Families: Use the tables below as a checklist and inventory items your child has from previous summers. Mark what needs to be purchased when you arrive on campus. If your child is arriving alone, be sure your child has this list of items in his/her pocket for when he/she goes through registration. This will eliminate purchasing items you already have purchased – both in uniforms and linens.
