Students must remember to provide all materials, school and personal that they require at camp.

Hint for parents

All clothing should be marked with a laundry marker.
Paste a clothing list in the case lid so students can keep track of what they have. Any lost clothing should be dealt with before the group leaves the camp site.

Pocket Money

Please limit the amount of money students bring to camp. The camp school will not accept responsibility for stolen money or goods. Camp leaders need to make provision to hold money in marked envelopes for students while at camp. Provision can be made to lock that money away.
