CYO Camps Packing List

Every camper is different, and will have some different things they want to bring to camp. But the following list of suggestions for a week’s stay should give you a good start on packing. The following list is based on a Traditional Camp Trip of 7 days. Adjust accordingly to the Trip your child will be attending and your program.

And don’t forget: The camper’s name should be marked on everything he or she brings, for easy identification.

*All personal gear is brought at your own risk. Camp is not responsible for lost or broken items. Please do not send any items that you will be upset about if they are damaged or lost.

LOST AND FOUND

Your first line of defense is to label everything! Lost and found items will be kept at camp until August 14 after which time items will be discarded or donated to a local charity. Call the camp office to make arrangements to pick up items left behind by your camper.
