Summer Session 2021 Recommended Packing List

In this COVID year, we’d suggest that you think a little more about the following:

  • Extra warm clothes, and substantial rain gear. (When it rains, it can get cold quickly. Because we can’t gather inside as easily, it’ll be important to have warm clothes and rain gear that’ll keep the warm clothes dry.) 
  • Masks. Campers and staff will be wearing masks each day. Remember there’s no laundry service, so at least one mask per day is necessary. Please label all masks. 
  • A small bottle of hand sanitizer
  • Water bottle. We won’t use the drinking fountains, so please bring a water bottle and make sure it is clearly labeled.  
  • Bag for dirty clothes /masks
