We’re never sure what the weather is going to be like in the summer. One day it may rain and the next it may be sunny. As a result, you will get dirty or muddy at some point in the week, so pack a few extra shirts and a pair of mud shoes or boots. If you pack for the changing weather, you’ll be more comfortable and have more fun.
We’ve put together this short list of things we recommend that you bring with you to camp to make your stay more comfortable.
Things to Bring to Camp
Here are a few things that we recommend you pack for camp:
- 3 pairs of jeans
- 7 pairs of underwear
- 7 t-shirts
- plenty of socks
- boots or mud/junk shoes for walking on the trails
- 1 sweatshirt
- tennis shoes or everyday shoes for walking around in camp
- swimsuit (one-piece only)
- beach towels
- comb or brush
- personal hygiene items (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, etc.)
If you need an EpiPen, specific medication, or wear eyeglasses, don’t forget to bring those with you as well.
We’ll spend a lot of time outdoors, so you may want to bring a few extra items.
- Bug spray (insect repellent)
If you like to take photos, you may bring a camera. You might want a book to read, or a backpack to carry some stuff in, or even a small flashlight. If you want to send a letter or postcard back home, bring a stamped, self-addressed envelope or postcard with you and we’ll put it in the mail for you.
Unplug and Unwind
We ask that you don’t bring any electronics such as cell phones, radios, or games (Playstation, Sega, Gameboys, etc.). Also, please don’t bring any money, guns, or knives to camp.
Most importantly, have fun! Get to know some new friends and experience the great outdoors.
