Camp Treetops Packing Information .: IMPORTANT :. The following guidelines for clothing and other items brought by campers to Treetops are very important. Please read carefully. On the reverse side is a packing list to be used in preparation for camp. Please include your child’s completed packing list in luggage. Clothing—All clothing should be very durable and able to withstand seven weeks of rugged use. Clothing is laundered in commercial machines, please allow for cotton shrinkage. Nametags/Labeling—All items brought to camp need to be labeled with camper’s name. Please use sew-in labels for clothing, as iron-on labels come off in the dryer. Sew nametags to center back neckband of shirts, to center waistband of pants, and on inside top edge of socks. Black SharpieTM markers are satisfactory to use on some clothing such as shoes, belts, raincoats, etc. Silver Sharpies may work well for labeling flashlights, combs, brushes, toothbrushes, etc. Swimwear—Please send swim suits that are appropriate for physical activity. Please do not send bikinis. Medications—Please pack all medications together to be delivered to the nurse. Be sure all medications are listed on the health form signed by your physician and are in the original containers. Camping Equipment—Camp Treetops provides high quality cooking gear, tents, daypacks, frame packs, and sleeping bags. If desired, a personal sleeping bag may be used. It should be of good quality, compact, and lightweight. Luggage—if possible, please bring duffel bags rather than suitcases or trunks. If you want to send luggage before camp starts, please use the identification tags provided by camp (these will come in the mail).
Bedding—Camp Treetops provides all necessary bedding, sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Toiletries—Camp Treetops will provide shampoo, conditioner, and liquid soap. Please bring items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. Cameras— Polaroid/instant print cameras are best. Senior campers may bring a digital camera as long as it cannot access to the internet. Memory cards must be blank. Additional Articles—musical instruments, tennis racquets and other sports equipment, fishing tackle, riding boots and hats, wet suit vest, extra eye glasses, and books are examples of items that may be brought to camp, but not necesssary. They all should be labeled. PLEASE DO NOT BRING • tablets, laptops, cell phones, e-readers, or any other electronic equipment • food or candy as it creates a significant health and safety risk when kept in cabins or tents • valuable items such as jewelry • watches • money • aerosol cans, make-up or cosmetics • items of great value or that need special storage • decorative items, such as rugs, lights, furniture or posters • please leave pets at home
