Packing List

Please mark all of your camper’s items! We do our best to keep bunks organized and having labeled clothes and sundries helps a lot! Keep in mind that we spend a lot of time outside and can get quite dirty. It’s best to pack clothes you don’t mind getting messy. We typically get some rain throughout the week so it’s best to send your camper with extra clothes and extra shoes. Our facility has no cell phone service; please have your camper leave their phone at home or take it with you when you drop them off. Campers are allowed to listen to their ipods with headphones during downtime and are allowed to use a camera. You are welcome to pack snacks for your camper though they will be collected by our staff and distributed at night during snack time. We don’t allow campers to have caffeine so please refrain from packing them soda or coffee. If your camper takes medication, please bring it in its original container. We provide first-aid supplies.
