What to Bring

2 Bags/Suitcases

Your child will use their bags throughout camp so please either use two bags or send a laundry bag so they can separate clean and dirty clothes during camp.

Labelling

All items must be clearly labelled with your child’s name and include a list of items they bring so your child can check they have packed everything before returning home. Please do not pack too many clothes to minimise the time the campers need to spend trying to find owners of lost property.

Child to pack bags

Please get your child to pack their own bags. We suggest you ask them to lay what they would like to pack on their beds to allow you to check they have what they need (and not more). Once everything has been named they should pack their bag.

Old clothes

Avoid packing new clothes as they are guaranteed to get dirtier than they would at home, and children often do not recognise their new clothes. Rather send their old favourites that have been clearly labelled.

Medication

Medication must be accompanied by dosing instructions that can be followed by non-medical staff and handed to their counsellor upon arrival.

If more than 2 chronic medications are sent, it would help if you packed them in daily dispensing containers (boxes with sections for each time medications should be taken).
