  • Bottled water

  • Lighters

Any items found inappropriate for camp will be held at the camp office. The camp is not responsible for lost or missing items.

Clothing Notes:

Footwear: Depending on the activity, we have requirements based on safety. Please pack a variety of footwear that will cover all the bases.

  • Athletic shoes are required for some activities (eg; sports, challenge course, biking, games that require running)

  • Sturdy shoes (ie: boots) may be required for hiking, strenuous “work” projects and farm and animal care

  • Sandals (keens, crocs, flip flops, etc) are fine to wear around camp for some activities. However, it is very easy to twist an ankle while walking some paths (just ask Joe, our director!)

Loss prevention

  • Please label with camper’s name all clothing, bedding and personal belongings.
  • Expensive personal items should be left at home (watches, etc). The camp cannot be responsible.

Casual Dance

We have a casual dance at least once a session. Campers should bring fun festive clothes to wear.

Laundry Service

Laundry service will be provided weekly for a small fee. We do not do camper laundry on site unless absolutely necessary.

Packing Suggestions:

Less is more. This is camp!

If you bring a small fan, bring an extension cord.

Plastic drawers and under-the-bed storage containers are useful and permitted.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the camp office and we will be happy to assist you.
