Tips for First Time Campers

Here are some tips to make your first experience at camp the best. The most important thing is to have a positive attitude!

Preparation and practice for campers before camp:
  • Live out of your camp luggage for a few days.
  • Spend the night at a friend's house to practice being away from home and your family.
  • Take showers instead of baths.
  • Wash your hair on your own.
  • Look at the Packing List (in your confirmation packet) and help pack for camp so you know where to find things.
  • Practice carrying your water bottle with you and drinking water at meals.
  • Remind your parent or guardian to look over the frequently asked questions so they are just as ready as you are!
Tips for Returning Campers

Even though your have been to camp before, here are a few tips and reminders to make sure this summer is just as good or better than the last time you came to camp.

  • Be prepared for camp to be a little different. Although many of the same things you love will probably be there, every year camp changes a little bit. For example, your favorite counselor from last summer might not be there, but we will have lots of cool new counselors for you to meet.
  • Returning campers of all ages can experience “homesickness.” Even the camp counselors sometimes feel homesick. Share how you’re feeling with your cabin mates and with your counselors. You can also try helping a first-time camper who feels homesick, sometimes helping someone else makes you feel better too!

Campers who are returnees are often “the experts” at camp. We encourage you to help other campers who may be new or just might not remember everything.
