Packing List 2019-11-27T18:13:45+00:00

What to Pack?

Some of our cabins are very small, so please limit your luggage to one duffle bag or one suitcase and a sleeping bag. To help you limit the amount of camp clothing, we offer a free mid-session laundry service for campers who are staying for two weeks.

We hope that all parents will be proactive during the packing process so that your child does not bring too much or too little clothing.

no_ipodCampers may bring digital cameras, but a plastic one-time use camera would be a better option for our rustic setting. Please note that Friends Camp is not responsible for loss, damage, or theft of any item. Please make sure that your child’s name is on the camera. Many digital cameras and one-time use cameras look alike. Valuable items or nice clothing should be left at home.

Parents, grandparents and friends: please remember not to mail packages with food or candy! Note that the counselors will be proactive about enforcing these rules by looking in suitcases and in all postal packages. Food received in the mail will not be stored or returned.

Special Packing List:  Teen Overnight Camping & Hiking Trips

fireFriends Camp will provide tents, cooking equipment and food. We have extra sleeping pads, water bottles, daypacks, and lightweight sleeping bags, so it is not necessary to buy these items for these outdoor trips. Please pack properly, because you will be hiking all day and sleeping in a tent for one night.
