Section Notes

Campers will participate in many different activities that focus on building and creating projects that combine different industry specialties. For safety reason, we require that campers wear closed-toed shoes and long pants in shop areas. We also recommend wearing clothing that can handle a bit of a mess, as our camp adventures are hands-on and creative.

What to bring to camp: 

Closed-toed shoes and long pants are required in the trade shops.

Please pack a backpack that fits your child properly with the following items daily: 

A large water bottle, sunscreen, and a hat. 

Clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and participation in physical activities outside. 

A nutritious lunch including 2 healthy snacks. Due to allergies, please do not include any nut butters or nut snacks. Campers will not be able to purchase food at camp and will not have access to the cafeteria or vending machines. 

Emergency supplies if applicable. E.g., mask, inhalers, medication for allergies etc. On the first day, let the staff know where the emergency supplies are in your child’s backpack. 

Please note: we recommend labeling all personal items. If items go missing, please check the Lost & Found. All unclaimed items will be disposed of at the end of summer. Our staff will do their best to help campers keep track of their items, however we will not be held responsible for any lost or broken items.
