Packing for Camp

Hey parents, please be sure to label EVERYTHING!

Packing for Camp

The most important things to pack for camp are energy, flexibility, and a readiness for adventure! Beyond that, your camper will need some stuff.

Label Everything

Every item your child brings to camp needs to be clearly labeled with your child’s name. There are many ways to label clothing. A permanent marker is one. Another is using iron-on or stamp-on labels. If you intend to order name tags or a name stamp, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. There are many options to choose from.

Luggage Tags

Watch for our color coded luggage tags arriving by mail in the beginning of June for first session and the beginning of July for second session. Affix a tag to each bag and make sure the camper’s name is on an additional label inside each bag. With so many people arriving, these tags will make sure your camper’s bag gets to the right cabin quickly.


A commercial laundry service takes each camper’s laundry once a week–included in tuition; no extra charge–and returns it in two or three days washed, dried, and folded. The packing lists account for this frequency and turnaround time. Get Your Feet Wet is so short that campers do not have laundry service.

This laundry service is not recommended for delicates, colors that have never been washed and may bleed, or very expensive items. But please keep those at home anyway. It’s camp!
