Participants should be prepared to dress for a variety of activities. Shaker Village contains a farm, gardens, orchards, and 1,800 acres of forest land all of which may be experienced by visitors. The local weather may change quickly due to influences from the mountains and the nearby ocean. Participants should bring heavy-duty footwear/hiking boots, work pants, and it is most recommended that layers are worn (shirt, sweater/sweatshirt, jacket). A brimmed hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, gloves, and bug-spray are all recommended for outdoor activities.
A change of clothes/footwear will be necessary – no dirty clothes or boots in the houses, please. Comfortable shoes and casual clothing will be useful for indoor activities. Casual attire appropriate for a religious community is recommended.
A washing machine and dryer are available for use, if necessary.
