◾Snack cards for Canteen: (Soda, ice cream, candy, etc.) are purchased at check-in.  No camper should need more than $20 for snacks.  Balance will be returned at check-out.

◾Book Store: Once or twice each week, campers will have opportunity to purchase items from the book store.  One of these times is usually at check-out.  You may leave money with your camper or you can have them window shop and confirm purchases with a parent or guardian at check-out.  

◾Offering:  For a number of reasons, we do not take offering during chapel.  A camper may give offering money at either check-in or check-out.

PLEASE LABEL AS MANY ITEMS AS YOU CAN.  Camp has a significant amount of lost and found each summer.  Please check the dining hall tables at check-out for your child’s items.  

What NOT to bring to camp  (Parents:  Please assist in this area)

◾Extra food for in the cabins. Crumbs bring critters and we don’t want them sharing your sleeping bags.

◾Fireworks, large knives, firearms or any type of weapon.

◾Cell phones or any electronic devices, including iPods & mp3 players , especially those that are internet capable.  In 2014 and following, we started having cell phones checked in at registration.  It is best if phones remain with parents at check in or are left home.  (Note to Campers: We promise you wont die without your tech.)
