  • Returning campers – Don’t forget your shield!

Essential for 3-10 day canoe trips (Boys 10-16 yrs.)

  • 3 pairs canvas or nylon running shoes (These will go through a lot, send old shoes or inexpensive ones.)
  • rugged rain suit (jacket & pants)
  • Life jacket
  • Sun hat
  • water bottle
  • Fox 40 whistle (LITs only)

These are suggestions only for a 26 day stay. You may be guided by the fact that the laundry goes out once a week and returns in two or three days. It’s a good idea to make a copy of this list and place it on the underside of your child’s trunk lid to aid your son and his counsellor in keeping track of the items.

Miscellaneous Sports & Recreational Equipment

The Camp has an ample supply of equipment for most Camp activities. However, here is a list of items, which could be useful if a camper already owns them:

  • paddle
  • camera
  • baseball glove
  • mountain bike helmet (for 11 yrs. and older)
  • swim fin & mask
  • tennis racket
  • tennis balls
  • musical instrument – guitar, etc.
  • archery bow
  • reading material
  • fishing tackle

Avoid sending expensive equipment to camp. Storage is in a tent and there are up to 200 campers at the camp at any one time.

All clothing and equipment must be marked with the campers’ name in a visible spot, either with cloth name tape or indelible ink.

You are able to order cloth labels from The Label Shop by downloading and printing their order form.
