Things to remember:
We will provide you with 6 staff shirts which are to be worn every day from Clean-up through Dinner. Staff shirts can be cleaned with your regular bunk laundry.
The weather can change dramatically from warm and sunny one day to cold and rainy the next. Please bring clothing that will cover a variety of weather conditions.
Throughout “Color War” (a four day field day type of event) you will be on either the green team or the white team and be required to wear your team colors. It is a good idea to pack a couple of green and white items of clothing. (Your staff shirts can be utilized for this purpose).
You may want to bring items that are a little dressier as there is a prom at the end of the summer. You may also want different clothing for days and nights off, depending upon what you decide to do.
Bring enough clothing to last up to 10 days, as laundry will not be your top priority. You need enough clothing to keep you clean and fresh until you get around to doing your laundry!
During orientation you will have a chance to pick up any necessary items you were unable to bring with you. There is generally a trip to the Mall. You may want to bring smaller sizes of toiletries to reduce your luggage weight and buy more during camp. Other items you may want to purchase once you’ve settled into camp are:
- Bedding – sheets and blankets – we do provide sheets, blankets, pillows and towels, however, our blankets are the itchy wool type and our towels are the small, health club size towels!
SEE EVERYONE SOON!
