Jr. High Winter Camp Packing Info

30 12 2010

For the Jr. High Winter Retreat I’ve cut and pasted some info off of the Forest Home Website:

The Essentials:

  • Luggage should be clearly labeled inside and out. It’s a good idea to place the camper’s name, address, phone number, and church attending with inside luggage as well as outside. Tip: Label everything you want back with a permanent marker
  • Sleeping bag and pillow. Tip: you can usually roll the pillow in the sleeping bag. It is a good idea to make sure the sleeping bag is in a watertight bag (even a plastic trash bag works).
  • Bible (and pens) – be sure your camper’s name is in it
  • Bath towel and wash cloth
  • Flashlight: Please be sure to label the flashlight and send extra batteries.
  • General toiletries: soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, towel, washcloth, etc.
  • Chap stick or other lip protection with sunscreen (non-flavored)
  • Clothing for two/three days
  • Clean socks (bring extras) & underwear.
  • Shirts
  • A warm hat or beanie
  • Mittens, gloves or scarves
  • At least two pairs of long pants and sweatshirt; evenings can be very cold (bring layers)
  • At least two pairs of shoes (in case one pair gets wet)
  • Poncho or other light rain gear: Rain is pretty common. Having waterproof gear of some sort can be helpful if it does happen to rain on us.

 

Medications:

Must be in their original pharmacy container along with written instructions. All in a Ziploc plastic bag with the camper’s name printed on it. (PLEASE NOTE: If meds are not in the original container we cannot and will not administer them.)

Optional:
  • Camera: Disposable cameras are the best. Be sure to label it with the camper’s name.
Please DO NOT bring the following items:
  • Weapons, such as knives or any other item or weapon designed to hurt someone
  • Air Soft Guns
  • Cell phones, pagers, radios, PDA’s, computers, CD & MP3/Ipod players
  • Any electronic games including Nintendo DS and other electronic video games.
  • Sleds, tubes, snowboards or any other large snow toys
  • Please, please avoid preventable heartache; do not send anything that is irreplaceable.
General Information
Camp Security: For the safety of all campers, Forest Home DOES NOT allow visits by anyone other than church staff during camp. Early arrival or pick-up of campers by parents is permitted in certain cases – they must be arranged in advance with church and camp staff.
Emergencies: If you have a serious family emergency and need to contact your child while at camp, you may contact the Forest Home Roundhouse at 909-389-2300
