Bible: and your favorite pen.
Dress: Casual with layers; Colorado’s weather can change suddenly! There is a laundry room available (liquid detergent only).
Climate Information: The elevation in Palmer Lake is 7,225 feet above sea level. Drinking plenty of water is important as you get used to the altitude! Colorado summer temperatures range from 75-90° throughout the day and cool to about 30-40° in the evening. Winter temperatures range from 0-60° with snow possible at any time. The fall and spring season will have both summer and winter ranges. As a result, we recommend that you bring clothing that you can layer.
Shampoo/Toiletries: Please provide your own.
Bedding/Towels: Provided and washed by housekeeping.
Laundry: Liquid laundry detergent only. There is a cost for personal use.
Van: There is an MTI van available for use in the Palmer Lake/Monument area. Please keep track of mileage to pay for use.
Sun Screen/SPF 30: Colorado averages 300 days of sun each year, even when we have snow on the ground. Our higher altitude increases the need for sun screen.
Lotion and Chap Stick: Needed for dry skin since the humidity is usually extremely low.
Shoes or Boots: Suitable for hiking and something comfortable for walking around inside.
Prayer Cards: Exchange with others.
Future Field Address: Have available so your new friends can keep in touch.
Musical Instrument: Consider bringing one for informal worship.
Favorite Toys: Your child may want something familiar to play with in your room.
Child Monitor: Consider this so you can leave your child napping in his/her own crib after lunch and take him/her to the nursery when he/she awakens. (MTI has some monitors available, if needed.)
Car Seat / Booster Seat: For your information, Colorado requires a car seat or booster seat for children under 7 years and weighing less than 70 pounds. MTI is happy to bring a car seat or booster seat for your child to the airport upon request.
Pack’n’Plays: Pack’n’Plays, sheets, and blankets are provided in the nursery and sleeping rooms.
Bicycles: If you choose to bring a bicycle, it cannot be brought or stored inside our facility. Note: If you are attending DAR at The Hideaway, please do NOT bring bicycles.
Books/Games/Computers: There are indoor activities in the game room, a library, puzzles, board games, and some outdoor activities available.
Shopping: MTI is only a few minutes away from a grocery store, pharmacy, and Wal-Mart.
