All Campers (Daily Needs)
- Attire – swim shorts, a water shirt, & closed-toe water shoes – We ask that campers come ready to get wet, no matter the activity, as they will likely jump in the water at some point during the day. Water shirts or quick dry t-shirts (not cotton) allow campers to be protected from the sun throughout the day, whether on the water or the land, with the ability the dry out once they are out of the water. We ask that campers wear closed-toe water shoes that will easily stay on their feet in and out of the water – flip flops and crocs are not suitable! If you would like to send your camper with sneakers, you are more then welcome to do so, but please make sure they have a pair of water shoes with them. If your child wear glasses, they should have sport glasses or a glasses strap.
- Water Bottle
- Sunscreen & Bug Spray – Due to state requirements, each camper must provide their OWN sunscreen & bug spray.
- Lunch – There is NOT a facility to keep lunches cool throughout the day; please plan accordingly. Lunch is available for purchase for our Maryland camps.
- Towel – This is OPTIONAL, but can be nice if your camper would like it.
- Rain gear – Be ready for rain, if predicted!
- Backpack – Please make sure that all of your camper’s items fit in one bag
