Guru-guru Camp

Packing for Guru-guru Camp

I might have the oddest camp packing list ever: 12 hoops; 2 iPods with 8 playlists; 6 blindfolds; 1 portable amp; 1 red and white striped festival banner; 3 cameras; a variety of battery chargers and and six-outlet extension cord; two tents; class notes for five workshops; hoop mix CDs; a jar of instant coffee; a ball of twine; art supplies; large cooler box, and oh, yeah, a sleeping bag. Plus a husband with a bicycle. I’m not quite sure how I am going to get it all to the island, but it will arrive one way or another!*

What should you bring to Guru-guru Camp? I can recommend the following:

  • Tent and bedding of your choice
  • Clothes, including comfortable shoes, warm jacket and rain gear
  • Hula hoops!
  • Juggling balls, poi and other flow toys
  • Fire toys, fuel, and safety gear if you spin fire
  • Yoga mat for morning yoga sessions and hoop “floor work”
  • Blindfold for hoop meditation workshop
  • Bicycle (or money to rent one)
  • Flashlight or headlamp
  • Bathing suit for outdoor onsen and ocean
  • Cooking/eating tools and utensils; food as desired
  • Sunglasses, sunscreen, insect spray, etc
  • Anything else you need to make your camping experience comfortable

* If anyone is going to Niijima on the evening ferry on Thursday 4/28 and has a car and wants to bring it to the island I will happily chip in for gas and ferry fees in exchange for some luggage space in your trunk or back seat!
