The following are general guidelines, please study and comply with specific instructions from the camp to be attended.
Keep the following in mind:
- Sturdy, comfortable, old clothes are best for camp.
- There are no laundry facilities, so pack enough for the whole session.
- Prepare for cool weather and hot weather, you may have both.
- Swimsuits should be quick-drying, and modest—trunks for boys and one-piece for girls; pack two if you can.
- Mark all belongings with the camper’s name.
Do not bring:
- Cell phones. They will be confiscated and returned at the end of the session.
- Electronic games, radios, video games or computers
- Knives of any size
- Candy or food

Other Important Information:
- Medicines – no exceptions:
All medication must be in a clear zipped plastic bag, and in the original pharmacy containers with labels that shows the camper’s name and how the medication should be given. This applies to prescription and non-prescription, including vitamins and natural remedies. Provide enough of each medication to last the entire camp session.
- Food on the day of travel to camp:
Nut-free snacks may be brought along for the trip. Campers going to Al-Gon-Quian need to pack a lunch and a beverage. Campers going to Lookout and Hayo-Went-Ha need enough cash to buy a McDonald’s type lunch.
