Packing Info (also in packet on page 10-11)

How to pack for camp

We are giving every teen and young teen a “one suitcase challenge”. Everything they are taking should be packed into ONE suitcase. Each camper is also allowed one bedroll (sleeping bag and/or sheets & pillow). Please label the outside of your camper’s suitcase and bedroll with their name, region and phone number. If your teens or young teens are bringing rollerblades or tennis rackets, please make sure these items are packed in their suitcase; otherwise they will need to place them under their seat on the bus. If these are taken separately, please make sure they are labeled as well.

What your camper(s) will need at camp

  • Bible
  • A bagged lunch for the bus ride up to camp
  • Bedding (sleeping bag and/or sheets & blanket with a pillow). These should be tightly rolled and tied securely.
