Packing for Summer Camp

Attention Parents & Guardians:

Please assist your camper(s) when packing for Camp. We rely on your supervision to ensure that the necessary and appropriate items (clothing articles, gear, toiletries, etc.) are selected. Clothing should not have inappropriate messages/images. It should be functional for active, outdoor fun. In addition, we highly recommend that you label all of your campers’ items with their name. If your camper is going on a Camp Daggett Wilderness Trip, please review our packing checklist here.
