PACKING LISTS, RESTRICTIONS AND DRESS CODE 

Our camps require an abundance of physical activity.  We want to focus on deepening our faith and enjoying our outdoor adventure, and not on one another’s clothes or lost possessions. 

____________________________

It is important to pack clothes that will be comfortable, safe, and modest and appropriate for athletic activities.
– Manufactured sleeveless shirts are allowed.
– A minimum of a 2” inseam on all shorts required.  It is more comfortable and modest to have longer shorts for ropes activities.
– Clothing that promotes non-Christian values will not be permitted.
– Cologne (attracts insects), make-up, and jewelry (is easily lost or broken) need to be kept to a minimum.
– Good hygiene is also important; deodorant use and showering are strongly encouraged.

____________________________

If medication(s) are needed, please bring them in this manner: Each dose should be placed in an individual Ziplock bag.  Then, place the individual bags in a large Ziplock bag.  Please include an index card with your camper’s first name, last name, medication(s), dosage(s), and time of use (AM, Noon, Dinner, Bed, as needed).
