While most days during the summer are warm it can be quite chilly during the early morning hours and evenings, especially towards the beginning and the end of the summer. Therefore, it is necessary to bring warm clothes such as sweatshirts and light jackets as well as long pants for all occasions. Rain gear is also essential including boots for the muddy conditions after a rainstorm.
American and Canadian staff members should bring bed sheets, blankets and a pillow. You should bring 2 – 3 good blankets. Counselors from overseas will be provided with bedding. Sleeping bags should not be used in the cabins as your primary bedding. Everyone needs to bring their own towels for showering and washing.
All staff members will be given three staff shirts during orientation. Please be sure that all other outfits worn during your time 'on duty' at camp are solid colors (college logos or athletic logos are OK). Neither girls nor counselors are permitted to wear name-brand clothes with designs, prominent logos, or sayings to any regular camp activities. We have these rules regarding dress in place because we are trying to cut down on the clothing competition among the campers and be role models for our campers. Your co-operation as a role model in setting this standard is essential. *Note: Counselors must always wear shoes, sneakers, sandals, or some-other proper foot covering while on camp grounds.
It is also important for staff to bring items that pertain to their
individual program. Softball counselors should bring their
gloves, golfers their clubs, etc. Bring your own tennis racket
as we do not allow staff to borrow equipment from campers. We
do not want you in the position of borrowing a camper's expensive
item and having it break. Please note that unfortunate past
experiences have dictated that this must be a firm rule.
Specific questions about program areas can generally be summarized
by stating that camp has most everything you need to run a program
that we offer or that we ask you to run. If you have some
unique equipment or paraphernalia that would enhance our program
and you think it is unlikely that we would have this on hand, please
feel free to bring these items with you to camp.
LAUNDRY We have laundry facilities on campus. You may use our facility
to do your own washing, can visit a local laundromat, or are welcome
to use our camp laundry service. Danbee laundry service is
done once per week in camp and clothing is returned the same day. Please
do not send good clothes through the camp laundry service as
they may be discolored when returned.
NO VALUABLES TO CAMP We urge staff not to bring
valuables or much cash to camp. Please
use travelers checks. We cannot be responsible for articles
such as watches, cameras, or radios that are left in camp buildings.
Small radios, disc-men and mp3 players are not allowed on campus
during the day and may only be played quietly in the bunk or
in staff retreats after campers go to bed.
