What to Bring

Label everything your camper brings to camp with their first and last name.


Daily Packing List

Lunch & Snack

Monday - Wednesday, bring your lunch with a drink in a sturdy bag.

Milk products are not recommended at camp as there’s no refrigeration. Sodas and sugary drinks are also not recommended as they attract bees.

Remember, all food trash will be sent home in the lunch bag as we do not dispose of food or food wrappers at camp (food smells encourage animals). You may consider sending a zip bag in the lunch box to contain uneaten food and trash.

Water Bottle

Bring a water bottle every day. We recommend ice water so that it’s more cooling in the heat.

We provide iced water stations for each unit for refills.

Don’t worry; if your daughter forgets her water one day, we have extras.


Wading Shoes

Bring an extra pair for shoes for wading.

Old tennis shoes or water shoes are perfect. The shoes must be closed-toed and have a back strap. Girls who do not have an extra pair of shoes for wading will not be permitted in the river.

Rain Gear

Keep an eye on the weather, and bring rain gear if needed.

Light jackets work best. Rain boots and umbrellas are almost never needed.


  • Sockless feet

  • Bare midriffs

  • Tank tops

  • Flip-flops

  • Candy

  • Gum

  • Toys

  • Electronics and cell phones; camp is NOT responsible for damaged or lost electronic items. No cell reception or internet access is available at camp.


Overnight Packing List

Overnight Bag

Pack overnight gear in a sturdy backpack, duffel bag, or heavy duty XL Ziploc bag with handles.

Do not put overnight gear in trash bags.

Campers must be able to pack and carry their own gear.

Overnight Gear

  • toiletries (including toothbrush, toothpaste and hairbrush)

  • sleepwear

  • pillow

  • outdoor sleeping bag

  • small cuddly or stuffed animal

  • clothes for Friday (including tie-dye shirt)

  • flashlight with new batteries

  • jacket or sweatshirt for Thursday evening (it does get cold when the sun goes down)

Cooking Gear

Bring a mess kit that contain a plate, bowl, cup and utensils. It can be a pre-assembled camping kit or an assortment of plastic or melamine items from home. No disposable plastic or paper dinnerware is allowed.

Campers are asked to bring their mess kit in a mesh bag with drawstring for hanging. An inexpensive laundry bag works great. If it does not have a drawstring, add a shoelace to the corner. Please do not send the mess kit in a plastic bag or Ziploc bag. The purpose of the mess kit and drip bag is to teach the campers proper dish-washing in a camp setting.

Girls who are not staying overnight should still bring a mess kit in a drip bag as they will still be eating their meal at camp before departing for home.
