The terrain of camp is made up primarily of rock/uneven hiking trails. There are steep and dusty hills that are difficult to navigate without the proper footgear; we strongly suggest sturdy shoes; no flip-flops please. Campers spend most of their days outside so sun-protection and hydration is a must!
Clothes will get dirty, please do not send new or expensive items to camp. Campers are responsible for carrying their own items up the hills; we recommend packing lightly with only required gear. Please label everything with your camper’s first & last name.
The camp store does not sell sweatshirts or jackets; please plan to pack warm clothing for your camper in preparation for inclement weather.
If you're having trouble obtaining any of the items on the packing list, please don't hesitate to call our office for assistance. Our staff will do everything we can to help you get ready for camp!
The following items are not allowed at camp. If found, they will be confiscated and returned at the end of the session; some items, such as weapons or drugs, will result in the camper being sent home.
Our dress code is based on safety and practicality; it reflects our values and endeavors to not be biased toward one gender or the other.
Don't feel like going out and purchasing all the toiletries needed for a week away at camp? Our essentials package can be added during registration for $13 and it will provide all the necessary toiletries for your camper. Our essentials package will include: shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush, lip balm, soap, sunscreen, deodorant, Kleenex, flashlight and batteries.
Camp staff work diligently to assist campers in keeping track of their personal items while at camp, but inevitably, some items will be lost at camp. We ask that you please label everything your camper packs to help us reunite campers with any lost items.
Labeled lost and found items will be sorted and stored at the Camp Sweyolakan Landing in bins. You can stop by the landing at any time to look for a lost item. At the end of the season all remaining items will be donated to a local charity.
