Dear Scout Camper,

Can you believe we are just a few short days away from camp this year? We have been busy preparing your activity program and setting up camp ready for your arrival - we hope you are as excited as we are!

This email has a few last minute things for all campers to be aware of, please feel free to share it with any other scouts in your troop that are attending in case they have missed it in their mailbox!

Your Summer Camp Team

Pack Your Bags

We have a lot of activities planned this year and we want everyone to be safe! To help youth prepare for camp, we have compiled some basic kit lists that will help when packing your bags! Please pay attention to the additional clothing and footwear for the activity sections, and remember all campers - youth and adults - must wear a sun hat or cap at all times!. We only allow flip-flops and open toe sandals/water shoes during free time swimming activities. At all other times, closed toe footwear must be worn. The campground has many uneven and rocky surfaces and we want to avoid injuries! To download the kit list, you can visit (all safety equipment is provided).

The Kit Lists can also be found in your Parent Portal.

Parents - the equipment list is especially important as it includes equipment for safe hiking and attire during camp. If your youth does not have appropriate footwear, backpack or other essential items, they may be unable to take part in activities. Each year we have youth arrive without the appropriate clothing and/equipment. If you have questions regarding equipment and footwear, please contact the Registrar.

Camper Essentials

Don't forget the following camper essentials: Personal Tent, Sun Hat, Water Shoes, Camp Chair, Sunscreen, Campfire blanket/warm hoodie, Water Bottle, Day Pack
