What To Bring
For your convenience, a suggested clothing and equipment list is provided below. Please be sure each item is clearly marked with your camper’s name. Duplicating this list and placing it inside luggage facilitates easier packing at the end of the session. Ample built-in “cubby” space is provided in each cabin for storage.
The temperature at Camp is quite nice, allowing for shorts and T-shirts during the day (85-95 degrees). Slightly warmer clothing may be recommended during the evenings (65-75 degrees). All clothing and personal items should be plainly marked with indelible markers or sewn-on tags. Please limit luggage to TWO pieces per child. Please use duffel bags or any other type of soft-sided luggage. We recommend you send old clothes as most activities occur outdoors and campers enjoy the freedom of not worrying about stains or the “impact of Georgia red clay!” We also recommend that children assist with packing their luggage. Laundry will be washed three times during each four-week session and twice during each two-week session. There is no laundry service for one-week campers.
