What to Bring to Camp

A packing list for Summer Camp:

DAY CAMPERS TO BRING
Be sure to have your campers dress for the weather - camp happens rain or shine!

  • Backpack with the following items:
    • Change of clothes
    • Rubber boots (both for horseback riding and for STEM activities) - These can be left at Birch Bay Ranch for the week and picked up on Friday. Please put your campers name in the boots.
    • Hat
    • Water Bottle with camper's name on it
    • Bug spray
    • Sunscreen
    • Hand Sanitizer
  • Pre-Assessment Check

Please ensure you have done a Pre-Assessment with your child EVERY DAY prior to bringing them to camp. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, with a history of international travel in the last 14 days, or with close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days must remain at home. Children must not attend the day camp program if they are sick. Symptoms to look for include: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell. It is recommended that you take your child's temperature each day prior to bringing them to day camp.
