Field Trips

Field trips will leave from and return to camp during the regularly scheduled day, so your child should travel to and from camp as normal. Campers must wear their camp T-shirt to travel off camp on the field trip (this helps with the visibility and safety of our group in public places). Campers need to bring a lunch and drink with them like a typical camp day. Campers are not required to bring money, but may bring up to $5 for souvenirs. Campers who do not go on the field trips will have a regular day of camp activities.


Campers cook dinner at their campsites, make s’mores, have evening activities, sleep out and then continue camp the following morning. Campers should bring everything they need to stay over when they come to camp on the Wednesday morning of the overnight, including a second lunch for the next day (both lunches will be refrigerated). Overnighters should be picked up on Wednesday afternoon at their regular time.

Campers who are staying for the Overnight need to bring with them to camp: Sleeping Bag & Pillow, Pajamas, Toiletries, Sweatshirt/warm top layer, Thursday clothes for camp, two lunches (Wed & Thurs), Extra Bathing Suit/Towel, and Flashlight
