A two-strap backpack, comfortable for hiking.
Bug spray and sunscreen. Please apply before camp each day.
An extra set of clothing and shoes. Consider clothing as sunburn, bug bite, poison ivy and tick prevention measures.
Proper footwear is critical for comfort and safety. Shoes should be sturdy and will get wet and muddy. Footwear that fits snugly will prevent accidents from uneven terrain at camp. No flip-flops or Crocs, please.
Rain coats when appropriate. Our camp is mostly outside and in all kinds of weather, and we play in the rain!
Please send at least 32 ounces of water in a reusable bottle. Tip: freeze a half-full water bottle at night, fill in the morning. It serves as both a cold drink and ice pack at the same time.
Please provide containers with lids so that uneaten food does not end up all over the lunch box. We teach campers to “pack in/pack out” just like at our National Parks.
Most importantly, have them bring their imagination, sense of wonder and adventure!
