What to Wear / Bring to Camp
Wear Play clothes, please do not wear anything that cannot get dirty
Please label everything that comes to camp with the camper’s name
Footwear must have a closed-toe. Keens are acceptable; however, crocs, sandals or clogs are not. Exception: campers may bring flip flops or crocs to walk to and from swimming.
Backpack with swim suit, towel, sunscreen, insect repellent, lunch in a lunch bag which will be refrigerated
Depending on weather:
For young campers, parents often send a change of clothes
Please apply sunscreen before camp (we will make sure it is reapplied after swimming)
Send another bathing suit if you want your child to change after swimming
Lunch: Each child brings a lunch and beverage (no glass please) with the camper’s full name and unit on it.
Medications if necessary are to be brought to camp on the first day of a session and picked up on the last day of the session. State regulation requires that the nurse administer all prescription medication from the original container. Label the container clearly with your child’s full name, unit, and time it is to be given. It should remain at camp for the duration. We also cannot administer expired or unlabeled medication. All medicine should be put in a bag marked “Nurse” and deposited to the nurse upon arrival. Medicine to be given on successive days is left in the nurse’s office. The remainder will be returned to you when the order is complete. The nurse will notify parents in the event of any illness or injury.
Please Keep at Home
We ask that you personally check your child’s backpack each day prior to them leaving for camp to ensure that only camp appropriate items are included. No electronic games, mp3 players, CD players, cell phones, trading cards, valuables or pets are allowed in camp. We provide all the necessary equipment for camp activities. If your camper would like to bring their own equipment for an activity such as fishing pole or lacrosse stick, please contact the camp office, we will determine each request on a case by case basis. The possession of alcohol, drugs and weapons are prohibited on the camp property.
