Camp Packing

When you are packing, make sure to mark all belongings with your camper’s name in permanent marker. It is also smart to pack together so the camper knows what is packed and where it is located. Please remember that much of your camper’s time will be spent outside engaging in fun (and sometimes messy) activities, so pack accordingly!

 

What to leave at home

To ensure a positive experience for your camper, the following items are not permitted at camp: cell phones, iPods, electronic games, non-prescription drugs (unless given to Health Supervisors, see Medication below), knives, weapons, and personal sports equipment.  As personal belongings at camp can be lost or broken, we discourage packing valuable items.
