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.

2017 Theme Nights

We encourage campers to dress up for each theme, however, it is not necessary for them to enjoy the experience. Below are recommendations of what to wear for each theme. 

T Bar M's Magic Kingdom (Monday)

Be our guest, be our guest. Put our service to the test. Come and join us at Camp Travis. And we provide the rest. Soup de Rio, games de circle. Why we only live to serve. Try the rolls, they're delicious. Don't believe me, ask the staff. Join us as we have a Disney themed party. We will have dinner and play games inspired by some classic Disney and Pixar films.
