  • You forget to label ALL clothes. Please label ALL clothing items with your first initial and full last name so that we can keep your kiddo’s stuff together.
  • You bring TVs, Laptops, or Cell Phones. These are not allowed at Camp.
  • You bring or frequently use plug-in appliances. Electric hair dryers and hot curlers can be brought to camp, but their use will be limited.
  • You pack glass containers - all containers must be plastic.
  • You don’t double check that your summer camp packing list is complete! :)
