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

If you intend to order nametags or a name stamp, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. It’s easy to forget! Every item your child brings to camp needs to be clearly labelled with your child’s name. Here’s the order form for one company we suggest: Sterling Name Tape Order Form

Luggage Tags

Watch for our color coded luggage tags arriving by mail. 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.

Laundry

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!

Spending Money

For this summer, since campers will not be going on trips out of camp (because of our COVID guidelines), there is no need to send your camper to camp with any spending money.

In camp itself, your child does not need money as well.
