Things You Should Leave at Home

Cell phones, Ipods, PDAs, MP3 Players, Handheld Games, Food and Candy, Video Games, Electronic Devices, Knives, TV, Stereo, Radios of any kind, Fireworks, Matches/Lighters, Tobacco Products including E-cigarettes and Vaping Products/Juices, Expensive Jewelry, Alcohol, Drugs, Animals, Personal Equipment and Anything of Value.

We discourage sending unnecessary items to Camp. Luxury items such as listed above are not needed. Cell phones and other listed items interfere with the camp experience and are at risk of being lost or stolen. Therefore, they will be taken by the counselor for safe keeping until the end of the session.


We recommend cloth labels or permanent marking to identify your child’s clothes and towels. The most practical storage and luggage system for campers is a trunk/plastic tub.

If you find yourself in need of certain items, the camp store will have the suggested items listed below for purchase:

Sunscreen, Hats, Deodorant, Soap, Shampoo, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Insect Repellent, Postage Stamps, Flashlight and Batteries, Postcards, Shirts, Water Bottles, Stuffed Plushies, Fun Stuff, and Care Packages.


For safety reasons, campers need to wear closed-toed shoes such as sneakers, cross trainers, hiking boots, etc. Flip-flops, Crocs or sandals may only be worn to/from the shower house and free-swim at the lake.

Swimwear Policy

Because of the activities that happen at Camp, girls are asked to wear modest one-piece bathing suits or tankini’s that cover the belly and buttocks. Girls may be asked to put a colored shirt over their bathing suit if it is deemed inappropriate. Boys must wear boxer style bathing trunks.
