Parent and Camper Guide
Things to bring and know
Having the right clothing, food products, gear, and hat are all fundamental requirements for safety and a great Day Camp experience!
Rest and Fuel
Please ensure your camper has had a good meal before attending camp each day. Campers will also need a good night’s sleep to keep up with all the fun adventures of each day at camp.
Arrival and departure
Please park and walk into camp. There will be staff to assist you and your camper.
If you need to pick up your camper early, you will need to have a valid photo ID, or we will not be able to release the camper to you.
What to wear and bring
Campers will receive a camp shirt, which is to be worn all week. Shorts, skorts, long pants, and leggings underneath skirts/skorts are always suitable. Campers who have not dressed appropriately will be removed from the programs until proper clothing has been obtained.
Sturdy shoes or hiking boots must be worn while at camp. No open-toed shoes or sandals.
All participants are recommended to bring a hat that covers the entire head.Food, gear, and other stuff
Sack Lunches/Dinners and water
are needed every day. Please send the food in an insulated carrier with the camper’s name on it. If you use ice, enclose the food in a Ziploc-type bag to keep everything from becoming a soggy mess.
Bring a water bottle with water (No glass containers). There are water faucets and jugs throughout the campsite for refills.
Prepare for the weather
While we always hope for balmy high 70s, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate. So be aware of the weather forecast, and plan accordingly. Layers work best for cool mornings, warm afternoons, and cool evenings. Be prepared!!
Bugs, sun, and medications
We recommend that campers use sunscreen and insect repellent prior to coming to camp.
Medications that need to be brought to camp must come to camp in the original prescription bottle prescribed by the medical physician. Any over-the-counter medication being brought to camp must be in the original bottle labeled with the cub’s name. Special instructions must accompany all medications and be signed by the parent/legal guardian. These medications will be held and distributed (at prescribed times) by the camp’s medical personnel. The camp medical officer, as per National guidelines, must collect all youth medications.
Younger siblings (not registered)
On the days you are volunteering, siblings that are not old enough to be registered as campers are not allowed on the campsite.
What ‘NOT’ to bring
knives or other weapons, including Scout knives
