Camp Materials

Check this page for the materials list for each camp. Please plan to bring everything on the second day of camp, and be sure to label everything with your child’s name, and put in a bag or bags labeled with your child’s name. For items like canvas, folders, and boxes, please write the name on the back or bottom.
