Don’t let packing get the best of you. Let us help!
|Shower stuff, feminine products, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc…|
For the love of hygiene, please don’t forget to pack deodorant!
Towels seem to be the most often forgotten item by both staff and campers.
Staff Tip: If you don’t like the super-thin single-layer TP, bring a roll of your own. 😉
Staff Tip: How do you tell the difference between a first-timer and a long-time camper? Returning campers bring shower sandals!
|All Clothing must be camp appropriate!|
A light jacket can be useful during evening activities, and don’t skimp on the socks and undies!
Don’t forget about swim time (no bikinis). Also, take a look at the dinner themes and bring stuff to dress accordingly. It’s totally optional but totally fun!
Staff Tip: Friday is always “Fancy Dress-Up Night” so bring something snazzy!
|Flashlight, plastic drinking cup or sports bottle.
Any bedding you need. Pillows, blankets, sheets, sleeping bag, stuffed teddy bear…. what? just me?
Staff Tip: If you are taking a sleeping bag, do yourself a favor and ALSO bring sheets. A sweaty kid or raccoon used your mattress before you!
Meds & More
|We read the Bible a lot at camp… Bring your Bible! Don’t have one? Let us know, we got you covered.|
Pen & paper for note-taking or journaling.
Staff Tip: A small handbag, messenger bag, daypack, or backpack can really help with carrying all of your class materials back-n-forth between classes.
|Any prescription or over-the-counter medicine you MAY need.|
Check-in all meds with the nurse when you arrive.
Protection from the elements like sunblock, bug repellent, lip balm.
Staff Tip: A daily 24-hour allergy pill can be the difference between a good or bad week at camp.
|Fan! It gets hot in the cabins during the day.
Stamps and envelopes for mailing letters, if that’s your thing.
A Camera. Look, if it plays music, makes calls, or messages, we’re taking it up. Taking pictures is fine though.
Staff Tip: If you bring that fan (and we really hope you do) bring an extension cord! There is a near-guarantee that your cabin counselor already nabbed the bed near the outlet.
