How to pack? Get ready for Summer Camp
Please be aware, that our camps are situated in the mountains. The climate on a mountain varies depending on what altitude you are on a mountain. Weather conditions can change dramatically from one hour to the next. For example, in just a few moments the temperatures can drop from very hot temperatures to temperatures that are quite chilly. Therefore, our campers should bring clothes for those conditions and be prepared for bright, sunny days on the one side and for sudden showers or temperature drops on the other side.

Your child will be very excited to head off to camp. It’s in your best interest to help him/her pack. While he/she may be able to do this on his/her own, you will save yourself the convenience with forgotten items if you oversee the packing. But, be sure to enlist your child’s help – this a wonderful teachable moment.
- Packing list
Create a camp packing list using the recommended list from the camp and other necessary items that your child may need, i.e. his/her medication.
- Try items
Highlight all of the items on the list that you will need to purchase for your child. You will need your kid/teen to try on items that may have become too small over the past year so that you can highlight them if needed.
Before camp begin shopping for items your child needs to take to camp. Finish this task in one week.
- Extra set of hygiene items
Purchase an extra set of hygiene items so that the items can be packed and you will not have to remember the day that camp begins. For example, purchase a toothbrush and toothpaste to pack and leave their home set at home.
Label all of your child’s items with his/her name.
- Plastic bags
Pack one outfit per day in a large gallon or 2-gallon size plastic zip bag. This will keep your kid’s clothes dry and your child organized.
- Shower kit
Place your teen’s toiletries in a type of plastic bag kit or plastic basket that would make it easy to travel to the showers. The kit should be big enough to hold your teen’s shower shoes/flip flops.
The day before camp starts recheck the list, pack up all of the gear and close the bag.
