Packing List

Campers will spend the majority of their daytime hours outside in all types of weather, so don’t pack things you do not want to get dirty! Light colored clothing is best. The following list should help you prepare for camp. Using one large soft bag or plastic container not only conserves cabin space but also makes moving into camp easier for you. Rolling suitcases can be challenging to maneuver around our parking lot and cabin area.
