What to Bring to Camp

Below is a recommended packing list. These items are not required, and you are welcome to modify the list based on unique camper needs and session type. All items should be labeled with your child’s name.

Camp can get messy, so leave your child’s best clothing at home. Pack clothes that can get muddy, dirty, wet, sandy, torn, grass-stained, etc., and label items with your child’s full name.

Although we will assist campers in managing their belongings, YMCA Camp Widjiwagan is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
