Packing List

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 cloths that they wear. If the high for the day is 60 degrees or below, please also include a second warm layer, long pants, and a hat. 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 hiking.
  • A full, non-breakable, non-leaking, water bottle labeled with the child’s name— if possible, please send your child to camp with 2 water bottles
  • Sunscreen (15+ SPF) with child’s name clearly labeled
  • Mosquito Repellant (optional) with child’s name clearly labeled
  • Rain gear (poncho/jacket)
  • Lunch (no refrigeration necessary and creating the minimum amount of trash which the camper will need to carry out on hiking days)
  • Snack – We provide a mid-morning snack that consists of Clif Kid 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. 
  • Extra clothes (optional) in large ziplock, especially for 5-6 year olds
  • Sunglasses (optional)
  • Bandana (optional)
