Here are some guidelines for packing clothes for Kamp:


Close-toed shoes are REQUIRED for wear throughout the camp with only one exception: a pair of water-proof flip flops is recommended for shower and bathroom use only. Tie shoes are required for all river and lake activities (an old pair of lace-up tennis shoes without holes).

Life Jackets: 

For all river and lake activities, life jackets are required. The camp has numerous life jackets available for use. If you have one that you prefer to wear that is U.S. Coast Guard approved, you may bring it.


  • For girls: Sturdy one or two piece suits are recommended as are t-shirts for tubing and canoeing to guard against sunburn and tube-burn… string bikinis. 
  • For boys: Sturdy trunks….no speedos or jammers. T-shirts are recommended for tubing and canoeing to guard against sunburn and tube-burn.

Kamp Clothing:

Campers and staff are expected to wear appropriate clothing at Kamp. We ask that midriffs be covered and undergarments not be exposed. No clothing or t-shirts will be allowed that send inappropriate messages, in written or picture form, that are profane or demeaning, promote illegal, violent, or gang activity, or promote the use of alcohol or drugs.

Clothing that will be considered inappropriate includes:

  • Spaghetti straps
  • Halter tops
  • Short shorts
  • Tube tops
  • Low cut shirts
  • Pants that sag
  • T-shirts with sides cut out

Ultimately, the final say on whether something is appropriate or not lies with the Kamp
