Staff Packing List

This list serves as a general guideline; please bring what you feel is appropriate based on our dress code and what you’re comfortable with.  Camp is very informal.  There are card operated laundry machines in the dorms. The Perkiomen School provides Sequoia with a number of these cards for our staff to share. Staff are responsible for putting money on the cards. We will also do a trip to Wal-Mart the first night of staff orientation so you can get anything you might need.

  • A watch, waterproof is recommended (crucial to being on time for camp activities, as Sequoia is a technology-free zone for campers)
  • Two sets of twin or twin xl sheets
  • Pillow
  • cloth masks (preferably 2 to 3)
  • Any and all PPE equipment you personally own (disinfectants, hand sanitizer, masks, gloves, etc.)
  • Light blanket
  • Power Strip and extension cord
  • Backpack
  • Clipboard
  • Overnight bag (in case you travel on your days off)
  • Enough clothes to last 7—10 days.
    • Note that Sequoia T-shirts are worn when on campus.
  • Several towels
  • Bathing suits
  • Shower caddy
  • An extra set of car keys if you’re bringing a car to camp

  • Cash for a laundry card (recommended: $15 to $20)

If you own any of these items, we recommend bringing them along (Any basic camping supplies, like a tent and sleeping bag, will be provided by camp as needed for trips):
