What should my camper bring to camp?
We know the list is long, but your camper needs to be prepared for many fun adventures on the farm! Campers should wear comfortable clothes that it's okay to get dirty. Please keep in mind this is an outdoor camp on a farm with a creek; there are many fun mud puddles even a day after a good rain! Campers should wear clothes it is okay to get dirty, wet, and possibly ruined. We are not responsible for items that are damaged or lost. Please label all clothes, shoes, water bottles, backpacks and other items!
To Wear Daily:
Short sleeve shirt
Shorts or Long pants*
Closed toe shoes
Riding day, (usually Monday and Wednesday, depending on the weather) Long pants, riding boots or shoes with a heal, and socks. Campers should wear their riding clothes on the mornings of their riding days, generally Monday and Wednesday (unless riding is rescheduled due to rain*)
Hat and sunglasses (optional)
Sun screen, bug spray, deodorant for older campers, applied at home
To bring in a Backpack Daily: In Backpack #1
A nutritious lunch and snack in an insulated lunch box. Please NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT PRODUCTS.
An extra snack if your camper is staying after 3:15.
Reusable water bottle, filled with extra ice and water (two is better!)
To Leave at camp for the week: Backpack #2 (Or duffle bag; but no food please!) If you prefer, you may ask your camper to bring wet items, or everything home every night; but they are welcome to leave these items here in a backpack or duffle bag.
Sunscreen and bug spray
Rain jacket with hood, preferably waterproof
For creek exploration: Change of clothes to wear into creek, bathing suits are fine, water shoes, to be used while creek stomping. Must have an attachment around the ankle; no flip-flops. Old sneakers work great; or some campers prefer rain boots to keep the little pebbles out:) Campers may choose to bring wet clothes/shoes home daily, or hang here to dry.
Light weight long sleeve shirt (optional)
Shorts and sneakers to change into after riding or creek exploration (optional)*
Riding Attire: long pants, closed toe shoes, preferably with a heal; nothing dangling, (such as long earnings or a superman cape!)*
A complete change of clothes
Also, on the first day, please send:
Waiver (Rev. May 2017): Even if you uploaded the Waiver, we need an original signed copy.
Medication: If the camper is to be given medication during camp, or has an Epi-pen or an inhaler, it must be sent the first day in the original prescription bottle with the campers name officially typed on it. Medication will be stored in a locked location, and given to camper as instructed during the week. Please provide instructions with the meds, if ambiguous on the bottle, as well as in the section on medication in the health history form.
Campers should NOT bring:
Electronic devises, such as cell phones, iPods, computers, electronic games; money; any valuables, including valuable jewelry; shoes or clothing; sports equipment; stuffed animals or toys; pocket knives, controlled substances. Camp Magnolia reserves the right to remove these or other inappropriate items. Such items will be returned to the camper's parent at the end of the day.
