Camp Travis Packing List and Themes

  • Sheets and one light sleeping bag or blanket
  • Three or four towels, two washcloths
  • Four or five shorts
  • Seven or eight t-shirts Tank tops must appropriately cover undergarments
  • Eight-ten pairs of underwear
  • Laundry bag with camper's name in BIG letters
  • Two modest swimsuits Gals: one-peice only with shorts
  • One pair of lake shoes
  • Eight-ten pairs of underwear
  • Two pair of pajamas
  • Eight-ten pair of socks
  • Pool footwear Sandals, flip flops, etc.
  • Theme costumes (optional)
  • One pair indoor/outdoor athletic shoes (non-marking type)
  • One flashlight
  • Small personal fan(w/ 6' extension chord if a plugin)
  • Toiletries*
  • Sunscreen
  • Bible
  • Paper/Notebook and pen
  • Self addressed stamped envelopes (to send mail at camp)
  • One pillow and one pillow case
  • Water Bottle*

This is only a suggested list - you are the final authority

* A helpful suggestion for Toiletries: Showers are quick at Camp Travis (we are in the country with septic tanks if you get our drift), so it is helpful to pack a 3 in 1 shampoo/conditioner/soap. This will help maximize the 2-minute shower!

** A note about water bottles:  If you've come in the past, we've changed our "Camper Gift" to something we think you'll love even more and will no longer be providing themed water bottles to campers at Camp Travis. We will have small plastic water bottles on hand for those who forget theirs and as always, have nice water bottles for sale in the Trading Post.

Trunk, Suitcase or Duffel Bag? All three options are good!  If you pack in a trunk or hard-sided suitcase, make sure it is no taller than 16" so it can fit under bunk. 
Helpful Hint:  Your empty laundry bag makes a great space to pack your bedding and pillow and frees up space to pack everything else in your trunk/suitcase/duffel bag.

Label Everything

It is much easier to locate the owner with everything either labeled or tagged with your camper's name. Doing this would be greatly appreciated.

Things To Leave At Home

Cellphone, PSP, ipods/ipads, jewelry, makeup, magazines, candy, gum, alcohol, and tobacco. No cameras or video camera / GoPro etc.! This is to help encourage a protective environment for all campers. We have awesome photographers capturing your camper's experience.
(Parents, this includes any care packages you might send to your camper during camp).

Do not bring cash to camp - you can put money in store account for store purchases.
Do not bring common meds like Aspirin and Tylenol - we have some we'll share.
