WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP

PACKING LIST

Days tend to be hot; July nights are usually warm, August nights can be cold. There are NO short shorts, see through tops, or clothing that shows the B’s (bums, bellies, breasts, or backs). Camp is a place for kids to have fun and we believe that, regardless of gender, clothing should not be something kids stress about at camp. Modest bathing suits are required. Clothing & swimsuits deemed inappropriate will require changing or covering.
