Summer Camp Gear List

What to Bring:
  • Kid sized daypack/backpack 

  • Full water bottle

  • Snack and Lunch - nutrient dense/low sugar food is best, as we are very active at camp

  • Bathing suit under shorts and tshirt

  • Long-sleeved, quick dry sunshirt. This can be packed in the backpack, instead of worn to camp, as they can be hot when not wet.

  • Hat

  • Two pairs of shoes: Closed-toe Water Shoes with straps (shoes that will stay on your foot when walking in water) and Tennis Shoes/Socks. No flip-flops please. Here is a preschool shoe recommendation.

  • Towel

  • A full change of clothes in labeled, water resistant bag - wet clothes will be placed in the bag after changing to be sent home. 

  • Anything your child needs to be comfortable in the outdoors

  • Please do not bring toys or electronics. Books or other nature related items are welcome though!

Lunch & Snack:

Please pack both a snack and lunch each day.


Lunch should ideally contain a vegetable, fruit, grain, and protein. Please do not send any desserts, cookies, chocolate, or other sugary items for lunch or snack. Students are very active throughout the day at Nature Connect and need complex, whole-foods for optimal energy.


Please do not pack any beverages other than water. It’s important for children to stay hydrated during our programs, and having sugary drinks can distract them from drinking enough water. 


Please apply sunscreen/bug spray before arriving each day at camp. We will also reapply periodically throughout the day.

Please make sure that your child's clothes are clothes that can get wet/dirty. Nature Connect staff are not responsible for stained or damaged items. Labeling all personal items is a great idea.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you!
