Montana Case Study:

‘It gets really hot during the day in Montana! It is advisable to pack Sunglasses, Sun cream & After-sun, along with anti-insect spray – there are lots of mosquitoes. A reusable water bottle is essential. However, the evenings are much cooler so a gilet or light fleece is also a good idea. During the first week you will attend 4H Congress at Montana State University (find out more about Montana 4H here), pack a flag from your home Country and Smart Clothing suitable for a dinner dance. During Congress you will provide a form of entertainment to the rest of the delegates – past travellers have taught dances, traditional British games or even hosted a ‘TV Gameshow’ style quiz. It is also a good idea to pack clothing/footwear suitable for working in – they need to comfortable and practical! A small token gift for your host family is a nice touch, presented as a ‘Thank you’ for making you feel at home.’
