  • Everything needs to be labelled with the camper’s first and last names. Order labels here.
  • Laundry is done once a week. It is returned washed, dried and folded the next day.
  • Keep It Simple! Even with labels, clothes can get lost at camp. Items that require special care should be left at home.
