Packing For Camp
Put your camper’s name on everything, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, they bring (including bags, trunks and other large items)!
Though tempting, don’t send too much - it just makes it difficult for your camper to keep track of everything.
Have your camper pack with you - they will need to know where their belongings are and how to stay organized.
Quantities and suggested items in the Packing List are our recommendations based on 80 years of experience. However, you know your camper best - please pack according to your own camper’s needs.
VERY IMPORTANT! DO NOT SEND ANY FOOD.
VERY IMPORTANT! DO NOT SEND CELL PHONES OR CONNECTED DEVICES.
VERY IMPORTANT! DO NOT SEND ANY TOILETRIES THAT ARE BERRY-SCENTED.
Our laundry facilities are extremely limited. They are reserved for “emergency” use only. Campers can do small amounts of hand laundry, but the best approach is to try to send your camper with enough clothing to get through a two-week stay.
Things You MAY NOT Bring
Tobacco/Nicotine/Vapes, Alcohol, Illegal Substances/Drugs, or Weapons.
Possession of these items is grounds for dismissal.
Animals or pets
Cell Phones or devices that connect to Wi-Fi or use cellular data.
These will be confiscated and kept safely in the director’s office until check-out day.
Anything of value like cash, fine jewelry, expensive cameras or electronics, etc.
Berry-scented toiletries - they attract unwanted wildlife.
Food, gum, or snacks of any kind.
Please check with the camp for permission to bring personal sporting equipment.
