What to Bring
Please remember we are an outdoor, adventure camp – this means we are outdoors everyday despite weather. The only time we will not be outdoors is if the weather poses physical danger to the campers and leaders. This means we are out in hot, cold, dry and wet weather, so please dress your child accordingly.
Please be sure that everything fits into one backpack. No glass or breakable items please!
Please be sure to label all items so that we can return anything that gets left behind.
Campers must wear appropriate footwear:
- We recommend appropriate, sturdy, closed-toe footwear for beach and mud walks that will protect your children from broken glass and shells. Sneakers are perfectly fine but please remember that the kids and their feet will get wet during the day. Keen sandals, LL Bean water sneakers, water shoes, or other similar footwear have worked well in the past.
We suggest the following as a baseline for daily camp wear:
- Sunscreen SPF 30+ Please apply before camp every morning.
- Each camper should bring a bottle of bug spray to camp every day. The decision of whether or not to use DEET free products belongs with the parents.
- T-shirt – a UV top/ rash guard is recommended
- Girls must wear swimsuits under clothing (where we go there are no changing rooms). Boys must wear their swim shorts and pack a spare pair of shorts or swim shorts in their bags.
- Hat or visor
- Raincoat or poncho as needed for inclement weather
- Sweatshirt or fleece and long pants or sweat pants if temperatures are cooler
- Socks in a plastic bag, especially if blisters are present
- Towel – optional for older campers
- If you have a Coast Guard approved life-jacket that fits your child, please have them wear it on Stone Pier drop-off days
On Rock Climbing Days:
- Long Pants are suggested, but not required
- Long sleeved shirt to go over t-shirt – again, suggested but not required
- Closed-toe shoes
Lunch & Snacks
- Filled water bottle (we will refill throughout the day)
- Insulated lunch bag with a nutritious lunch and beverage, (no soda) if desired. Two snacks (no candy). Non-perishable items are recommended since no refrigeration is available.
- Our staff is not allowed to administer medication. Please administer the medication to your child before the beginning of the day.
- Do not pack medication with lunch or snacks
What needs to stay home?
- Personal listening devices
- Portable game devices
- Trading cards
- Stuffed animals
Cell Phone Policy
- Children can bring their cell phones if their parent deems it imperative. It must remain off during camp hours and in the camper’s backpack, we are not responsible for damage to the phone.
- Cell phone use is not allowed during camp!
