Warm sleeping bag or other bedding. Temperatures can get down to the forties or even thirties at night. If you have a sleeping pad (either closed-cell or open-cell will do), it will be useful on the overnight; but it’s not necessary.

Casual clothing. Camp is informal throughout. Be prepared for either warm or cool weather. Besides warm weather items, include items for cooler weather. You may also want to have a set of old clothes to use during Service Projects.

Warm jacket. Mittens or gloves and a stocking cap may be handy for the overnight, or cold weather.

Comfortable shoes for hiking. Besides sneakers or tennis shoes (which are fine for around camp or on short hikes), it’s best to have something that provides more support and protection for longer hikes and overnights. If you bring hiking boots, make sure you wear them for several weeks at home before you come to camp, so they’re well broken in to avoid blisters.

Socks, underwear, etc. When you hike, it’s sometimes good to wear two pair of socks—a thicker pair over a thinner pair, so your foot doesn’t slide around in your shoe.

Towel and personal toilet articles (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)

Lightweight rain gear. This is important for hikes and overnighting away from camp. The camp has a limited number of ponchos that can be used, but we don’t have enough for everyone, so bring one if you have one.

Bible. Bibles are also available for camper use at camp.

Small flashlight; camera; musical instruments (optional).

Sunscreen and mosquito repellent. Protect yourself! The sunscreen is particularly important.

Other items to consider: A day pack or backpack if you wish. It is not necessary; but if you have one, it could come in handy for hiking or overnighting away from camp. A pencil or pen. Fishing gear (see information on fishing.)
