GUYS/casual attire

Feel free to dress comfortably and casually as you follow these guidelines:

  • We require that shirts not be sleeveless, tight, or too short (no midriff skin or boxers visible).

  • We require pants and shorts have no inappropriate holes, not be too tight, and not be worn too low. Avoid short shorts. To check for tightness, pinch the sides of your pants and make sure there’s some wiggle room. 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.

  • We recommend bringing comfortable shoes for playing sports, hanging out, etc.

  • We recommend bringing shower shoes for all residential camps.

insider TIPS

  • If you’re a candidate, we recommend dressing in a way that tells people “take me seriously,” especially during primaries, open forum and election returns.
