Clothing and Dress Code
Philosophically, we understand that clothes are an important statement for young people about who they are and how they want to be seen. Our reality, though, is that we operate an Episcopalian camp in the outdoors with children of many different ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. Clothing can be torn, lost, stained or undergo other mishaps.
Please make sure that whatever you send errs on the side of modesty: clothing must cover all private body parts and undergarments; tankini or one-piece bathing suits are required for females, board shorts or loose-fitting swim trunks are required for males. We will ask campers to change clothes if we feel they are inappropriate and we cannot be responsible for damaged or missing items.
Questions or concerns about our dress code? Don't see something that should be included on our 'What NOT to Bring' list? Have questions about an item that is included on the 'What to Bring' list? Send them our way via Meg Schwarz- talking about what campers should bring to camp reminds her of how exciting it was to get ready for camp when she was a camper many moons ago!
