What to Pack
Your Camp Packing List

We've all been guilty of packing too many clothes for our kids,
and not enough essentials.

The lesson learned: pack the right stuff! 

Bring enough clothes for the length of the session. Comfortable play clothes rather than expensive casual wear are preferred. Please talk with your child about taking care of and keeping up with belongings.

Every effort will be made to help campers keep up with their belongings and find lost items, but the camp cannot be responsible for lost items. Use this camp packing list to ensure your child has everything they need and nothing they don't.

All clothes and other items should be labeled and a list of items
should be taped to the inside top of the camper’s trunk or suitcase.

Here’s a list of the most
“I forgot to pack...”
items for camp.

  • Footwear is important for children at camp, especially when they are hiking, horseback riding or heading to the lake! We suggest packing boots, tennis shoes, sandals AND lots of socks!
  • Headgear is a necessary to protect kids from the sun and bugs. Scarves, bandannas, baseball caps or a sunhat, sunglasses and goggles are important.
  • Bed and Bath is an aspect of camp that can’t be ignored, as having fun and getting dirty go together for most kids! Bring towels, as well as a blanket, pillow, pillow cases, sheets, sleeping bag and laundry bag. Don’t forget the sun block and bug spray.
  • Water Bottle, Water Bottle, Water Bottle! With your child’s name on it. We stress the importance of drinking water as children can become dehydrated quickly in the heat of the day!
