    I don't know the price of items but it won't hurt to bring more than $50. My recruiter said you can also use your debit/ATM card to retrieve cash if needed. He also said to not use abbreviations at boot camp and instead ask to use the "automated teller machine".

    You could also just trust that what the Coast Guard tells you is accurate and follow the helmsman. I don't know, maybe thats a crazy idea.

    I just graduated and $50 cash was nowhere near enough for me.  That first time you go to the exchange you can buy more supplies like razors and deodorant but you can also buy more PF gear, extra ODU tshirts, extra sweats and towels.  So I ended up spending $110 that day.  You will also be able to go to the exchange in the later weeks pretty much whenever you need something.  You can use credit or debit cards and there is an ATM though.  Also at the end of boot camp you will have the option to buy souvenir items like T-shirts and challenge coins.  Plus there are your two liberty days.  So $50 won't cut it if you only plan to use cash, you will probably have to stop at the ATM.
