What to Leave at Home

Part of the mission statement of our camp is to allow campers to enjoy the outdoors. For one week, campers are invited to leave the city and not bring it up to camp. Therefore, we ask that the following items be left at home:

  • Money (you don't need it)
  • Boom boxes or Radios
  • iPods
  • Mp3 players
  • CD players
  • DVD systems
  • Cell phones
  • Walkie Talkies
  • Candy, snacks or any food
