Prepare for an exceptional adventure

How do you plan and pack for The Gettysburg Leadership Experience? Here’s what you need to know.

Consider the setting and the season.

Gettysburg is a small town—population 7700—in south central Pennsylvania. While it’s well served by major highways, travel time from area airports should be considered as you make plans. Whichever route you decide to take, you’re in for some beautiful scenery.

The Gettysburg Leadership Experience is offered year-round with daily outdoor sessions, so factor in likely weather conditions for the season you’ll be here. Reception and dinner dress is business casual—no jacket necessary. We’ve prepared the following checklist for your convenience and comfort. And do remember to pack an open mind!
