Who staffs your infirmary?
While we hope that your camper will never have to visit the infirmary, if she does she will be treated and cared for by our wonderful health staff. Two Registered Nurses are on site 24 hours a day as well as doctors in surrounding areas who are on call. In addition, all of our counselors are certified in CPR and First Aid to ensure campers’ well-being.
What should I pack?
You will find a detailed packing list and other important information in the (PDF). The list is for a two-week session. For one- or four-week campers, please adjust accordingly.
What should I NOT pack?
Do not send cell phones, CDs and CD players, PSPs, electronic games, digital cameras, iPods, iTouches or iHomes. We cannot be responsible for these items if misplaced.
- All items must be clearly marked with the camper’s name. Lost items that are marked are more likely to get back to the owner.
- Pack your daughter’s clothes in a footlocker or trunk.
- Try not to send your daughter’s best shorts, shirts, or jeans. At camp clothes often get dirty and worn.
- For everyday footwear, please do not send flimsy or backless shoes. (Exception: She will need flip flops for shower time.) Tennis shoes or sport sandals such as Chacos or Tevas are best.
- A good flashlight is a necessity at camp.
- A small shower caddy or bucket will be helpful in carrying shampoo and other items to the shower.
- For younger campers, large 2-gallon Ziploc bags may be used to pack a day’s clothing (shirt, shorts, underwear, and socks).
- For new campers, please pack one red, one green, and one blue shirt. These are the colors of our clubs. This way when your camper finds out what club she is in she will have something of that color to wear on club competition days.
- Many campers bring a shoe holder to hang over the top bunk. It is a place to keep smaller items readily available like toiletry items and stationary.
One of the most popular hang outs on campus, Beli Deli is open twice a day and campers may purchase snacks and drinks.
