What To Bring To Camp

LABEL CLOTHING

Although not required, we recommend clothing and equipment be labeled with your family name.

Campers are encouraged to keep track of their items.

 

CHARITY

We will hold forgotten items for one week.  Owner may pick them up, or we will mail them at the owner's expense.  Unclaimed items will be donated to charity.

WEATHER

Keep an eye on the weather forecast -  some cool-weather and rain gear are also recommended in July.

You may consider not bringing expensive or favorite clothing/items that you wouldn't want damaged.
