What to Bring
WEATHER AND OUTFITS
While most days during the summer are warm it can be quite chilly during the early morning hours and evenings, especially towards the beginning and the end of the summer. Therefore, it is necessary to bring warm clothes such as sweatshirts and light jackets as well as long pants for all occasions. Rain gear is also essential including boots for the muddy conditions after a rainstorm.
American staff members should bring bed sheets, blanket(s) and a pillow. Counselors from overseas will be provided with bedding. Sleeping bags should not be used in the cabins as your primary bedding. Everyone needs to bring their own towels for showering and washing.
All staff members will be given 6 staff shirts during orientation and you will wear one every day you’re working. Most staff wear athletic shorts, however you can wear leggings, jeans or sweat pants in the evenings when it cools down. Your attire should be “camp-approrpriate” and work for what activity you instruct in each day. *Note: Counselors must always wear shoes, sneakers, sandals, or some-other proper foot covering while on camp grounds.
- Long-sleeve shirts
- Jacket (i.e.: fleece)
- Swim Suits (1 piece)
- Sweaters or Sweatshirts
- Bed sheets
- Laundry Bag
It is also important for staff to bring items that pertain to their individual program. Softball counselors should bring their gloves, golfers their clubs, etc. Bring your own tennis racket as we do not allow staff to borrow equipment from campers. We do not want you in the position of borrowing a camper’s expensive item and having it break. Please note that unfortunate past experiences have dictated that this must be a firm rule.
Specific questions about program areas can generally be summarized by stating that camp has most everything you need to run a program that we offer or that we ask you to run. If you have some unique equipment or paraphernalia that would enhance our program and you think it is unlikely that we would have this on hand, please feel free to bring these items with you to camp.
We have laundry facilities on campus. You may use our facility to do your own washing or can visit a local laundromat.
NO VALUABLES TO CAMP
We urge staff not to bring valuables or much cash to camp. Please use travelers checks. We cannot be responsible for articles such as watches, cameras, or iPhones that are left in camp buildings. We have lock boxes and small safes in the office to store computers and other valuables.
