    Already registered? Q: What should my child bring to camp?

    A: All campers should wear tennis shoesplease no Crocs or sandals.

    Every camper should bring a peanut-free snack and a refillable water

    bottle. Prior to camp, youll receive an email from each head counselor

    with specific camp information and further details.

    Q: What about sunscreen and water?

    A: We strongly encourage both. Campers are responsible for applying

    their own sunscreen before camp and must bring a refillable water bottle

    each day. Many campers will, at some point, be outside having fun and

    need to be able to take their water with them on their travels.

    included in the price of camp. Campers attending both morning and af-

    for lunch, or (2) participate in our Lunch Bunch program. Please contact
