Many new campers have a hard time remembering everything they need for camp! Here is a sample packing list to help you make sure you don’t leave anything behind!

couples can push two cots together for queen size bed effect

There are no stores near by and it is a big schlep to town. Try to bring everything you will need for the weekend, keeping in mind that all meals are provided.
There is no electricity in the cabins. Everything has to be battery powered, and no candles or oil lamps are allowed. The cabins can also be kind of dark, so having a battery powered lantern or two is a great idea.
Don’t forget that we are having a cabin decorating contest on Saturday during the social hour. Consider entering!
