Blue Mountain School Gear Guide

We've put together a list of outdoor gear that your child will need as well as suggested pieces to make up your child's snack and lunch gear. The outdoor lists were compiled by Teacher Jenni, who leads our outdoor programs. You don't have to choose these specific brands, but comparable items are needed. The snack and lunch items we chose are reusable and durable to help reduce packaging waste.

If you have outgrown or unused gear you would like to pass on or sell, please feel free to send email to the school list or to post on the Blue Mountain School Family Facebook Group.

Extra Clothes

Everyone from early childhood up to middle elementary needs to have an extra set of clothes on hand. You never know when a mud puddle will beckon! Extra clothes should be sent to school in a wet bag. This helps us get dirty clothes home to you without having to use disposable plastic bags.


Rain Gear

Waterproof boots are a must as well as a hooded, waterproof jacket. A one-piece rain suit may be better for younger kids, while older children may prefer rain pants to go with their jacket.

Winter Gear

Often overlooked, hand coverings can make or break a kid's day. Insulated, waterproof gloves work well for older children, but younger friends should have mittens to simplify dressing. The Bogs boots we recommend for rain will work well for snow also, and be sure to have snow pants on hand for wintery days.

Lunch Gear

There are many options out there for lunch boxes and reusable containers. Here are some of our favorites. When choosing a water bottle, be sure to pick something leak-proof and try to avoid un-cushioned glass if possible, especially for younger friends.
