What Do I Need to Bring?


This is a suggested packing list for a 4 week session. Quantity may vary depending on your child. Individual “cubby space” is limited, so please pack less rather than more. Every item your child brings to camp MUST be labeled with your child’s name. We suggest writing your child’s full name. Do not use initials. Use an indelible marker where nametags cannot be sewn or pressed. Send the marker to camp with your child in case nametags come loose. There will be 3 laundry days for each session and one laundry day for each two week session.
