What To Bring/What Not To Bring
Packing for Camp
Please be sure each item is clearly marked with your camper’s first and last name (not initials!). All clothing and personal items should be plainly marked with indelible markers or labels. Please also write your camper’s name on their laundry bag with indelible markers.
Built-in cubby space is provided in each cabin for storage. On average, each camper will have four deep cubbies for their belongings.
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 mornings and evenings (65-75 degrees) in the earlier part of the summer.
Please limit luggage to two (2) pieces per child. We only allow soft-sided duffel bags at camp to allow for easier storage. No trunks! We recommend large duffel bags or any other type of soft-sided luggage. Many families find luggage at an Army Navy Store or online. If you are shipping your bags or flying with them, please review luggage size limit information in pre-camp travel emails.
We recommend you send clothes that you do not mind getting dirty or stained. Most activities occur outdoors, and that Georgia red clay just can’t be avoided!
Parents: Please supervise packing your child(ren)’s luggage! We encourage children to assist with packing their luggage.
Lost and Found
Lost and Found items are displayed throughout and at the end of each session, and counselors will make every attempt to help campers locate misplaced items on a daily basis! However, CBM cannot assume liability for the loss or damage of personal items. Please label everything!
Laundry will be washed three times during each four-week session and once during each two-week session. There is no laundry service for one-week campers.
A professional laundry service from our local town of Cleveland washes, dries and folds the contents of each camper’s clearly marked laundry bag and returns clothes the next day. Please make sure your camper’s laundry bag is made of durable material. Mesh bags do not hold up well over the course of the summer, and do not help to protect the clothes inside. CBM laundry bags are available for purchase prior to camp. For more information, please check our online store.
