Packing List

The following is a suggested list and will help organize your camper. Nametags or a permanent black marker should be used to label every article of clothing and all other belongings for each camper. A list of your camper’s belongings should be taped to the lid of their trunk and we recommend that you AND your camper pack together so your child really knows what they have with them! Trunks are typically 32 x 18 x 13.5 inches.

All campers’ laundry is done on camp property by the cabin counselors. Laundry will be done once a week, but please still pack as if your child will need clothes for one and a half weeks. This helps account for rainy weather and excessive laundry days.

Clothing:
Waterproof shoes or rubber boots – 1 pair (rainy days can create lots of mud)
Warm jacket – 1
Sweatshirts/sweaters – 2
Raincoat/poncho – 1
Long pants – 3-4 pairs
Sneakers – 2 pairs (required – 1 smooth soled for tennis, 1 for other sports)

Campers who will be horseback riding must wear an ASTM approved helmet, and boots or hard-soled shoes with a heel.
