What should I Pack for Camp?


Camp is even more fun when you have the proper gear! We've created a downloadable packing checklist of what to bring (and what not to bring). Click below to print.

What if my child becomes homesick?


We have a full and fun schedule for camp, but it is not uncommon for children in this age group to become homesick. Our counselors are trained to offer reassurance and security and to seek assistance from the camp nurse. We will contact the child's parent/guardian, as needed.

What about medications?


We have a certified nurse as part of our camp staff. The nurse is responsible for the health and first aid of all campers and staff. The nurse will keep records and administer medications in compliance with state regulation.
