overnight packing lists

equipment & clothing checklist

Camper_Check_In (31)

Use this handy checklist to be sure your campers have everything they need when they come to Camp.

Remember to pack enough for the entire session, as laundry service is only offered for those staying over between Sessions 1 & 2 or 3 & 4.

Luggage is stored underneath the cabins or in a separate shed, so please keep that in mind when packing. We recommend packing in a duffel bag, suitcase, camp trunk, or large storage bin.

NOTES

Your camper might enjoy having some reading material, non-electronic games, etc. for quiet time or a rainy day. We provide one under-bed drawer per camper for clothes. Please mark ALL clothing, luggage and personal items. Clothing should not be expensive or new. Please inform family members NOT to send money or food to campers. There is no need for cash, and no place to spend it. This only opens the window for a child to lose or misplace something valuable. Please note that Camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
