Bedding

When you arrive on Opening Day, we will have a red jersey style blanket available for all campers. Campers need to bring TWO sets of twin-sized sheets for their bunks. We recommend a comforter or warm blanket for cold nights, and all campers need to bring a pillow and pillowcases.

Egg Crates and Mattress Pads: Many campers enjoy extra padding for their mattress. If you bring an egg crate, you MUST take it home with you on Closing Day, as we are unable to recycle these. For easier packing, we recommend bringing a thick mattress pad instead of an egg crate. You can purchase these online, for example, one like this.

Bunk Decorations

Campers love decorating their space and making it feel like home. In an effort to simplify Opening Day, as well as comply with fire marshal regulations, campers may only bring bedding items and photos to decorate their bunks. Bedding items include blankets, stuffed animals, personal sheets/comforters (if you choose to bring these), and pillows.

If you bring other decorating items outside of these approved decorations listed below, we will take them down after parents leave on Opening Day and put them back in the camper’s trunk. No camper wants to figure out how to redecorate her space! Please help us by only sending approved decorations.

You cannot bring plug-in or battery operated string lights. Please also do not bring extension cords (these are safety issues enforced by our fire marshal).

Approved decorations:

  • Bedding, blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals
  • Pictures: individual or on a poster board or small bulletin board
  • Clip-on Fan: battery-operated or small plug in fan, like this one

Decorations that you may not bring:

  • Decorative elements like personalized signs or letters
  • Plug-in or battery-operated string lights
  • Garland of any kind, including pom-poms
  • Hanging poof balls or paper items
  • Any non-photo item to hang

Head to Toe Rule

In order to comply with health regulations, all camp bunkbeds are set up Head-to-Toe, meaning that campers on the top bunk cannot have their heads facing the same direction as campers on the bottom. Your cabin counselor will help you to know which way you need to make your bunk on Opening Day.
