What to Bring

Packing Suggestions

Over the years, we have received a number of requests for a more complete list of what people bring to OCBC. So, we asked previous OCBC attendees to let us know what they and their family’s bring to OCBC, and what makes the week easier and more enjoyable.

Below are a number of the suggestions that OCBC attendees shared.

NOTE: Many of the items on this list are not necessary, but many do make the week easier and more comfortable. If you have questions, please reach out to someone you know that has attended OCBC before, or contact the OCBC team at registration@ocbcbibleschool.com
