What to take to summer camp

Remember to label your camper's belongings. If you don't, you might be amazed at what your child brings home (or leaves behind).

  • Comfortable clothing, including swimwear and sleepwear
  • Hat with a brim
  • Rain gear
  • Sturdy footwear (running shoes, sandals, at least one pair that's waterproof)
  • Toiletries
  • Bedding and towels
  • Flashlight
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen and insect repellent
  • Optional items such as: musical instruments, camera, writing supplies (pen, paper, stamped envelopes), books, games, small backpack (maybe even a small surprise treat!)

What to leave at home

  • Electronic games and personal listening devices
  • Cellphone
  • Expensive items that will devastate your child if they are broken or lost
  • Too much money; a modest amount is all that's needed to buy the occasional treat or souvenir at the tuck shop
