Packing for Camp

ranger with kids in stream

Campers will sleep in a cabin with 3 other campers and 2 Camp Counselors. Each camper will be provided a sleeping bag, bag liner, pillow, and pillow case to use while at camp. Each camper will have a locker for hanging and storing clothing, a shelf and a mirror.

Campers ARE NOT allowed to have any mobile devices at camp. This includes cell phones, iPads, tablets, e-readers, iPods, etc. Campers may be permitted to use the camp phone as needed. Parents may also contact the Camp Director as needed (you will be able to contact the Camp Director or Deputy Director 24 hrs/day).

Don‘t pack anything of value. You and your camper are responsible for any damage or loss of valuable and electronic items.

Label Everything. ID your camper’s belongings with permanent markers or sewn in labels.
