What to Pack for Camp
Click here for the Camper Packing List.
At the end of summer, there is always a pile of campers belongings left at camp. This is an expensive waste for our campers (and their parents!) As a way to target the problem of lost belongings and a large lost and found closet, we are encouraging our campers to label all belongings.
We look forward to sending campers home with ALL their belongings this summer!
We ask you to limit phone calls to your child to absolute necessities. A birthday call is always appropriate on a child’s birthday. Check the schedule and call at a meal or snack time. Normal office hours for our Steinbach office are 9:00am to 4:00pm Monday-Thursday. The Steinbach office is closed on Fridays. Messages left after 4:00 PM on Thursday will not be returned until Monday.
