Having trouble figuring out what to bring? Here’s a list of Do’s and Don’ts to bring with you to camp. Don’t worry though, if you forget something, the counselors are here to help you out!

Things to bring:


  • Toiletries: toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo/conditioner, soap, comb/brush
  • Clothes for 8 days: pants, shorts, shirts, long sleeve shirts, light jacket (just in case the mornings are chilly)
  • Sheets (twin XL size, fitted), pillow, sleeping bag/blanket(s)
  • Slippers, socks, tennis shoes/sneakers (required)
  • Party clothes for the dance party
  • Towel
  • Bathing suits

(If you aren’t sure, you can always take a look through last year’s pictures to see what the other campers wore.)


  • Board games, playing cards, etc.


  • Alarm clock
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunglasses
  • Night light
  • Blow dryer
  • Cameras
  • Chinese Yo-yos/Diabolos (and sticks)
  • Feminine hygienic products (counselors will have some just in case)

Things not to bring:

  • Do not bring electronic video games. Camp is to make new friends and you can play your video games at home. This includes DSes, PSPs, iPods, etc.
  • Wushu/martial arts weapons
  • Anything unnecessary that risks being stolen, such as toys, trading cards, etc.


  1. Please be certain to have your name on all of your items. Each camper is responsible for all personal items. Keep extra money secured.
  2. We do not recommend campers bring more than a few dollars to camp. The only time you will use money is for snacks at the vending machines
  3. Campers are allowed to call parents at night with a cell phone, but shouldn’t bring it with them to class.
