IMPORTANT: There will be a lice check at camp registration. Please check your camper prior to arrival at camp. Here's a website about checking for lice and what to do if you find any. We regret that we will need to send campers home who have lice when they get to camp.
Here's a Downloadable PDF of the 2018 "What to Bring Letter"
What to Bring With You
Clothing and Bedding – enough for 4 days of warm/hot afternoons and cool evenings and mornings, sleeping bag (or twin sheet and blanket) and pillow, swimsuit, 2 towels (one for swimming/stretching, one for showering), river shoes (flip flops won’t work)
Reusable Water Bottle!!!
Toiletries- sunscreen, toothbrush, comb, soap, shampoo, etc.
Unique Talents- musical instrument that you can play (optional)
Medical- Please bring all medications in their original containers labeled with dose information. Put multiple medications in a bag with the camper’s name on it. We will need you to complete our Medication Form as well. The camp nurse must dispense ALL medications, even over the counter meds, and including vitamins.
What Not to Bring to Camp
(You will have plenty to do and plenty to eat.)
Media or Media Devices- Do not bring magazines, movies, music, radios, ipods, cell phones, pagers, or any kind of video games. (Paper books to read at bed time or draw in during free time are OK!)
Valuables- the River is not the place to have electronics or fancy jewelery
Anything Dangerous- weapons of any kind, alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs
Outside food- snack food, gum or candy. Food in the cabins attracts wild animals like skunks, squirrels, and Jays.
