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: One tried and true way to help your camper out with their clothes is to pack each day's outfit in an individual zipper bag! Also, 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.

Come one, come all, and join the greatest show on earth. It's the T Barnum and Bailey's Traveling Circus, and they're stopping here on Monday night! Learn to tight rope with high flying acrobats, tame lions and tigers (and bears... oh my!), and witness the world's strongest man wrestling a giant squirrel.

Costume Ideas: dress like a clown, lion tamer (with those sweet tall boots and a whip), acrobats, strong men, and of course a top hat and red coat (we may even make you the ring-leader)!

T Bar Mazing Race (Tuesday)

For all you world traveler's out there, this is your Theme Night! Cabin's will be traveling the Camp globe from end to end, passing through road blocks, detours, and checkpoint challenges, all with the hopes of being the first Cabin to win the T Bar Mazing Race. Get your passport ready!

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 (outside of theme nights), magazines/non-Christian books, candy, gum, alcohol, and tobacco. No expensive cameras!
(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.

Please Note: Any of the above items found at check in or during camp will be taken up and all non-food items will be returned at departure time.
