Packing for Summer Camp

Everything you need to know about packing for overnight camp — packing list, dress code, electronics, valuables…

While at camp your child will play outside and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Please do not buy them new or special clothes for camp. Your child’s play clothes should be sufficient. The packing list is merely a list of suggestions, not requirements, to get you started. You know your child best, so please feel free to pack what you know they will need.

Camp Dress Code

Strong Rock has a modest dress code. T-shirts, tank tops, and shorts with modest hemline are always the best bet at camp. In order to create the environment we desire, we must enforce the following dress code:

  • Clothing that expresses distasteful or vulgar messages or images will not be allowed.
  • Clothing that is revealing, such as very short shorts, shirts that expose the midriff, or clothing that is excessively tight will not be allowed. - Boys may wear sleeveless shirts, but will be asked to keep their shirts on, except for swimming.
  • Campers should leave any footwear that does not have a rear strap or back to it at home. They will not be allowed to wear them in classes that require physical activity.
  • We request that parents send swimsuits with their daughters that do not reveal their midriff. If they do not have one, please send a dark t-shirt with them that they may swim in. They will not be allowed to wear swimsuits that are revealing.
  • Campers staying two weeks may bring a nicer outfit for Sunday morning services, but shorts are fine.
  • Campers intending to take horseback riding MUST bring pants. Long pants are necessary to keep stirrup leathers from pinching and rubbing the rider’s leg. Campers will also be required to wear boots with a smooth sole. We have a limited supply of boots, but request that campers bring their own pair if they already have them. No camper will be allowed to ride in tennis shoes, hiking boots with treads, or duck boots with treads. Anything but a smooth sole and defined heel can hang up in the stirrup and be dangerous. Please do not hinder your camper’s participation by forgetting this request.

Electronics, Personal Sports Equipment, Valuables

Although our world is becoming increasingly electronically dependent, CD players, Ipods, MP3 players, cell phones,smart watches, hand-held games, and all other similar devices are not allowed at camp. All such items will be held in the office and returned to campers at the end of the session.

Campers are encouraged to leave valuable or expensive cameras, sports equipment, watches and other jewelry at home. Camp will not be responsible for the loss or damage to such items. All cash should be deposited into the campers Outpost account and will not be allowed in the cabin. Campers may not bring any pets to camp.

Does My Child Need Money at Camp?

No, campers may not keep cash with them in the cabin.

Snacks, t-shirts, hats, water bottles, hammocks, stamps, etc. are available in the Outpost (the camp store) each afternoon after rest hour. Parents are encouraged to set up a spending account for their child. We suggest $75 for Mini Camp and $120 for Main Camp. Unspent funds are refunded on closing day.

Lost and Found

Strong Rock’s staff will do all they can to ensure your camper goes home with all that they brought to camp. To assist us with this phenomenal feat, we ask that each camper have his or her name written on each item when possible, even disposable cameras, and toiletries. Please write in permanent pen, on or near the tag. We maintain a Lost and Found until September 1st. After September 1st, Lost and Found items will be donated to a local charity.
