Cedar Camps


Packing Checklist

Pack with your campers, not for them, so they know everything they're bringing. Names need to be on all clothing and equipment. Order forms for name tapes, map, and other information will be sent when downpayment is received.

Laundry is only done in the middle of each two-week session and is charged on store account. Therefore quantities listed are those suggested for one week's use. All can be packed in a footlocker, suitcase and/or duffel bag.

For Family and Adult programs, please see the downloadable Family Packing List.
