What to Bring


Be prepared for warm and wet weather! Please make sure all items brought to camp are freshly laundered prior to arriving.


A sleeping bag and covered pillow OR twin sheet, blanket(s) and a covered pillow are required for all campers. Unless absolutely necessary for comfort when sleeping, we ask that campers do not bring any toys/stuff animals to camp.


Modesty is the guideline. At least (8) eight changes of clothes are recommended as most the days are long and hot. Here is a loose example of what to pack for clothing-

  • 5-7 shorts
  • 8 t-shirts/sleeveless shirts
  • 2 pants
  • 2 bathing suits (one piece or full length tankini for girls)
  • 3 pair of pajamas
  • 1 sweatshirt
  • 1 rain jacket
  • Shoes
    • 2 pair of sneakers, 1 flip flops (for pool/shower), 1 rain boots, other comfortable shoes
  • 7 pairs of socks


Campers should come equipped with all of their own personal toiletries

  • Shampoo
  • Body wash (and a wash cloth or loofa)
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Hair brush/comb
  • 2 Towels
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Misc items:
    • Bible
    • Notebook/pen
    • Flashlight

Possessions should be marked with the camper’s full name. Campers may also want to bring a tennis racket, rollerblades, baseball glove, skateboard, street hockey stick, cleats or other sporting equipment, if desired.

Money for the snack bar

Each day, our snack bar will be open in the afternoon and evening. It is a recommended that each camper have $15-$20 added to their account for use throughout the week. Snack Bar accounts are paid for online through the registration as an Add-On. No cash is accepted at camp. Any unused balance will be returned to the credit card that was used to register OR you can choose to donate it to the Camp Life scholarship fund.

What not to bring

While cameras are welcome, we desire that Camp Life be a place for young people to retreat from their everyday routine and from the worldly distractions of today’s society. Therefore, we ask that campers leave behind all electronic devices.

As a rule, these items include, but are not limited to, cell phones, laptops, tablets, televisions, DVD players, iPods, iPads, or other mobile/gaming devices and video cameras. We reserve the right to confiscate and hold these items, with no liability for their safety, until the end of the camp program.
