Never hurts to get some extra sleep. Camp is amazing and exciting and also exhausting. Don't forget your towel and duct tape.

Camp can go by in the blink of an eye, or so it seems. You may wish to record your adventure in photos and/or a journal. That being said, live the moment and enjoy every part of your camp experience. Be yourself and have fun!

Things to bring: a water bottle, a towel, a day bag to carry your stuff around, a notebook and pencil/pen, some duct tape (yes, really), and a mini flashlight or head lamp. You will want to bring those items (except your towel) in your day bag everywhere; you never know when you will need them as part of an activity or mission.

If you will be there on a Thursday, be sure to wear tall socks! It is a camp thing... Try to get your team onboard too.

Lastly, remember to so back here after camp and share your experience. We all love hearing how everyone enjoys camp, as we all take something different away from our time a camp.
