Packing For Camp

As you excitedly prepare for camp and begin counting down the days, the quintessential question will likely arise – 'What should I pack?' Packing for camp often adds to the excitement and anticipation of the summer. However, we know it can also be a bit overwhelming. With that in mind, we have compiled a suggested packing list to help ensure your child has everything he or she needs.

But don’t sweat it! If you happen to forget anything throughout the packing process, we will do our very best to provide whatever item(s) may be missing. We are absolutely committed to treating your child like family… which sometimes means helping out with a forgotten toothbrush or left-behind pillow!


  • The most common mistake we see is over-packing. Campers tend to wear shorts and T-shirts most of the time, though they will need sweatshirts and/or layers as evenings on the mountain are quite cool.

  • Be sure to pack plenty of socks and underwear as they tend to disappear.

  • PLEASE PACK OLD CLOTHES! Your child(ren) will be running around a mountain day after day, and their clothes WILL get dirty.

  • Make sure that all clothing, shoes, and personal items are clearly marked with a laundry pen or name tags. If space allows, use your camper's first and last name or first initial and last name (Maggie Mayo or M. Mayo).

  • Campers love to decorate their bunks, so feel free to send in items to make your camper's bunk their home away from home!

  • Make sure to send WARM items for the Caverns sleepover - warm socks, warm PJ’s, or a hoodie.

  • Storage is minimal in our yurts; you may want to consider an over-the-door organizer for your camper.
