Things to note:
Cell Phone/Wifi: Wifi is there but not strong, especially in the boy's cabins and oldest girls' cabins. Verizon works best.
what to bring to camp:
Cabin Packing Ideas:
pens/crayons/colored pencils + paper/kid-proof scissors
decorations based on the week's theme
sharpies (the last day of camp these are like liquid gold for signing shirts)
music already downoaded (non-explicit)
Personal Packing Ideas:
luau outfit for the dance (colors are fun!)
daily outfits inspired by the word of the day! (TBD)
sneakers/close-toed shoes (for nature walks and for climbing the tower!)
sweatshirt + sweatpants + light scarf (it can get chilly at night! and some programs are in AC!)
tees + tanks
2 bathing suits (one always seems to be wet and that's no fun)
bag/fanny pack (we provide them but you will need a bag of some sort on you all day)
extra blanket if you tend to get cold
towels (2) one for pool one for showering (quick dry towels are awesome!)
herbal tea bags/Mug
flashlight (although our phones do it all now)
iced coffee packets
