What to bring to camp

The following is a suggestion of what you should bring to camp.  Use your own judgment!  It's suggested that you label your clothes, and please do not bring valuables with you to camp.  We will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items!  Coin operated washers and dryers are available in each dormitory if needed.  Please bring detergent and quarters. Please Note: Campers must bring their own bedding and towels
