Packing Tips

    • Label EVERYTHING!
  • Don’t pack anything of value.
    • Things do get lost, damaged, and/or borrowed while at camp. Old T- shirts, sweatshirts and shorts are quite the style at camp!
  • Each camper should have their own suitcase, we discourage shared suitcases between siblings.

Special Note about Cell Phones:

  • Campers are not allowed to have cell phones at camp. While it may seem counter-intuitive, we have found that campers who bring cell phones have a harder time adjusting to camp life and can have more difficulty with homesickness. A large part of camp is learning to be independent and you can help your children succeed by making sure he/she does not bring a cell phone.
  • However, if your child would like to have a phone for traveling purposes, we will gladly keep it for he/she in the office until closing day. Please let the staff know if we should expect your child to have one.
