What To Bring

What To Bring

Camp Baker is a very active place, and the majority of our activities take place outside. So being properly prepared every day is essential. Each day campers should:

  • Be dressed in appropriate clothing for play and weather, including sneakers and a hat.
  • Please come to camp wearing your swimsuit each day and bring a change of clothes to keep at camp.
  • It’s ok to bring sandals for swimming, but kids must wear sneakers during the rest of the day.
  • Apply sunscreen SPF 30 or higher each morning, and bring your own sunscreen so we can reapply.
  • Apply insect repellent with DEET each morning, and bring your own to reapply. Parents are strongly advised to check for ticks every day.
  • Bring a backpack to hold their items, kids will bring homework and daily reports home in their backpacks.
  • A small, cooler-type lunch box filled with a morning and afternoon snack, and a healthy, hearty lunch.
  • Refillable water bottle with ice and cold water.
  • Swimsuit and towel every day, and goggles and swim cap, if desired.
  • Bring medication in the prescription bottle. Staff will store medication in a locked, secure box and administer at the times provided in the medication order.

What Not To Bring

If any of these items are brought to camp, the Associate Director will keep them throughout the session and return them to the camper’s family. Bringing any of the first two items will result in the camper’s immediate dismissal.

  • Weapons of any kind: pocket knives, fireworks, lighters, or matches etc.
