Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need to bring a sleeping bag?

Yes or linens.  The cabins have beds and mattresses, but you will need to provide your own pillow, sheets, blanket, and/or sleeping bag.  There will be an opportunity to sleep outside if you are interested and you would need to provide your own tent and/or sleeping bag for that.

Do I have to be in Tesla House to go on the trip/Do I have to go on the trip if I’m a member of Tesla House?

No!  Although we encourage Tesla House students to apply for the Geneseo-Letchworth Experience since the goals of Tesla House align with the experiential learning that will take place on this trip.

How much extra money will I need?

You will have the opportunity to go to the gift shop in Letchworth, otherwise, all costs are covered from Sunday night through Wednesday night.  You will need to purchase your own food on Sunday afternoon (if you arrive early) and after the program has ended (Thursday all meals, Friday breakfast and lunch).  Friday dinner is the first meal that is covered on your fall semester meal plan.

Helpful hints from other trips:

A change of clothes and shoes for the evening as you may get dirty and wet during the day.
Bug spray and sunscreen
Don’t forget your camera!
May get chilly at night, hot during the day
Bring boots and raingear; we will be outside even in inclement weather
