2021 Packing List

All items brought to camp must be clearly marked with the camper’s name. We recommend using Mabel’s Labels stick-­on labels that can be attached to clothing labels, personal items, shoes etc.   We find that Mabel’s makes the most durable stick-on labels.  They  can  be  ordered   from   here:  www.campsequoia.mabelslabels.com.

Please do not mark your camper’s clothing items with laundry pens because they fade. Please make sure any items you mark by hand have your child’s first name and first initial of their last name.  We will make every effort to ensure that campers take care of their belongings. However, it’s possible that some items will become lost or damaged at camp. Please leave valuables at home as we cannot assume responsibility for lost or damaged items. Please note that while we do try to return lost items, any items that are not labeled will remain in camp since there is no means of identification. As a reminder, laundry is done once a week.
