Packing List

All items must be clearly labeled with the child’s first and last name. PLEASE note that each child’s group will have a large bin to hold all of the gear that they will not need for that particular day. So, if you send your child to camp prepared for the week, then (s)he can leave unused articles in the bin for the entire week and take them home on Friday. PLEASE label all of your child’s clothing and gear.

  • A backpack, sized to fit your child, that can hold all personal belongings listed below.
  • Clothing for any weather, including at least one warm layer (fleece jacket, etc.). More specifically, if rain is in the forecast, campers should have an outer waterproof layer (rain jacket or poncho that will not soak through in heavy rain), and a warm layer (not cotton because it gets cold when wet), in addition to the clothes that they wear. Kids have fun in all weather conditions, as long as they are warm!
  • A hat that provides full sun protection
  • Closed toe shoes appropriate for biking
  • If your camper has his/her own bike and helmet, we encourage you to bring them! Developing skills and confidence on the gear campers use at home is great. All equipment will be inspected for safety, fit, and functionality by our instructors. However, we always provide enough bikes and helmets to outfit all campers for the week if you do not have personal gear.
  • A full, non-breakable, non-leaking, water bottle labeled with the child’s name.
  • Sunscreen (15+ SPF) with child’s name clearly labeled
  • Extra clothes (optional) in large ziplock
  • Sunglasses (optional)
  • No lunch needed! Since this is a half day program, campers do not eat lunch with us
  • Snack: We provide a mid-morning snack that consists of Kind Bars, Fruit Twists, pretzels, crackers or dried fruits. Campers with dietary restrictions and allergies are asked to bring their own snack as we cannot guarantee that food items are allergy free.

    Camp Location

    August 12th-16th camp will be at Bixby School, 4760 Table Mesa Dr, Boulder, CO 80305

    Packing List

    All items must be clearly labeled with the child’s first and last name. PLEASE note that each child’s group will have a large bin to hold all of the gear that they will not need for that particular day. So, if you send your child to camp prepared for the week, then (s)he can leave unused articles in the bin for the entire week and take them home on Friday. PLEASE label all of your child’s clothing and gear.

    • A backpack, sized to fit your child, that can hold all personal belongings listed below.
    • Clothing for any weather, including at least one warm layer (fleece jacket, etc.). More specifically, if rain is in the forecast, campers should have an outer waterproof layer (rain jacket or poncho that will not soak through in heavy rain), and a warm layer (not cotton because it gets cold when wet), in addition to the clothes that they wear. Kids have fun in all weather conditions, as long as they are warm!
    • A hat that provides full sun protection
    • Closed toe shoes appropriate for skateboarding
    • If your camper has his/her own board, helmet & pads, we encourage you to bring them! Developing skills and confidence on the gear campers use at home is great. All equipment will be inspected for safety, fit, and functionality by our instructors. However, we always provide enough boards, helmets and pads to outfit all campers for the week if you do not have personal gear.
    • Water bottle labeled with the child’s name.
    • Sunscreen (15+ SPF) with child’s name clearly labeled
    • Extra clothes (optional) in large ziplock
