Packing for camp can be an artform. If this is your first time, I’m sure your head is spinning.

To ensure your camper has what they need to enjoy their experience to the fullest, here is our suggested packing list. The following clothing and equipment for a week’s stay should give you a good start.

And don’t forget: Your camper’s name should be marked on everything he or she brings, for easy identification. Parents, please be sure to read our 2018 Parent Handbook – Overnight Camp! In addition, here is information on Medical Care.
