As you and your child prepare for a fun day or week at camp, follow the information below for more insight and information about camp.

What to Bring to Camp

Make sure your child has everything they need each day to make day camp a fun and enjoyable experience. Use the packing list below to help prepare for day camp.

NOTE: We suggest that you label all your child’s belongings. If you do not, you might be amazed at what your child brings home or leaves behind.

Things to bring to camp each day:

  • Bathing suit, towel, goggles, lifejacket (if needed)
  • Plastic bag for wet or dirty clothes
  • A lunch and two snacks
  • Water bottle
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen 
  • Bug spray
  • Indoor Shoes – this helps keep our areas clean.
  • Outdoor shoes and weather appropriate clothing. We spend time outdoors EVERYDAY at Camp AWESOME.
  • Please do not send children to camp with money, toys, phones, electronics or valuables. We make every effort to protect campers’ personal belongings that they bring to camp, but we cannot guarantee that things they bring to camp will not get lost or broken.

Camp Lunches & Snacks

Pack your child a nutritious bag lunch they’ll enjoy and that will fuel them with energy for all their activities. We will also take two snack breaks during the day. Do not pack items that require refrigeration. We do have a microwave at Camp Awesome.

Some children that attend camp may have severe, life-threatening allergies. When packing lunches and snacks, please do not include any of the following products in your child’s lunch:

  • Nuts and nut products
  • Other camp specific allergies will be shared with parents/guardians closer to camp

Does your child take medication?

If you child takes medication required for their daily function, ensure you give it to the Camp Supervisor immediately upon arrival to camp. Our Camp Supervisor will need to review the requirements and ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed.

In most circumstances, the Camp Staff must store all medications to ensure safety and safe administration.

We ask that you clearly label the medication with your child’s name, exact dosage, and the time it should be administered.

A Day At Camp

Day camp program takes place between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm at Camp Awesome. Each week of camp, there will be an overarching theme of each week at camp connected to on of our Camp Awesome Pillars. In addition, each day of camp will include time focused on each of our pillars to allow for a full and rounded experience. This ensures campers get to experience a variety of activities and learning opportunities, while keeping programming diverse and different each week/day of camp.
