Note from Pali Institute

Unnecessary Items

To avoid the loss of valuable items, we strongly suggest that the following items remain at home: cell phones, video games, computers, portable music devices, and other expensive electronics.  The Pali Institute staff will confiscate all of the previously listed items upon your child’s arrival.  In particular, cell phones are not permitted at Pali as reception is almost non-existent and we find it distracts from the learning environment.  Your child will not be permitted to call home during their visit.  Also, we cannot guarantee any of these items’ safekeeping and will not replace them if lost.

*During cold weather months there is a good chance of rain, snow, or both.  Located at 6,400 feet above sea level, Pali experiences colder weather and more intense sun radiation than its surrounding areas.  They can get snowstorms as early as October and as late as mid-April.  Even when days are warm and sunny, evenings are guaranteed to be chilly if not cold.  Because your child will be spending most their time outdoors, please help them pack the appropriate layers indicated on the packing list.  A warm student is a happy student!  Even during the coldest of weather, we experience stronger UV rays at the high elevation and recommend sunscreen and sunglasses. Pali Institute recommends checking the weather forecast frequently prior to your visit.  The weather can change drastically, and we want you to ensure that your child is properly prepared.
