Summer Camp Packing List

The following list is intended for all camps except Narrow Way Expeditions (NWE). If your child is
registered for a NWE camp, you can find unique equipment lists for each trip on the Narrow Way Expeditions

Due to limited space and state regulations, please pack your child’s belonging in the appropriate storage
container/bag as noted below for their designated camp.
