Packing Checklist

Preparing for camp is an exciting part of the adventure, and we’re here to help ensure you pack everything needed for a fantastic and comfortable stay. At Camp Kee-wanee, we’re all about embracing the great outdoors, engaging in fun activities, and making new friends. That’s why our packing list emphasizes practicality and preparedness, ensuring you’re ready for whatever the day brings, from sunny afternoons to unexpected showers.

Whether it’s your first time joining us or you’re a returning camper, this checklist will guide you through what to wear, what to bring, and what to leave at home for an unforgettable camp experience. Let’s get packing!

What to Wear to Camp

  • Play clothes – we get dirty here!
  • Labeled T-shirts – Tank tops do not protect from the sun
  • Labeled Shorts
  • Socks and sneakers or covered-toe sandals like Tevas
  • A Hat
  • Hair ties for anyone who has long hair.  This is important for keeping our pool filters clean as well as keeping campers cool in the heat.
  • Labeled sweatshirts in case the weather changes.

  • Labeled bathing suit
  • Labeled towel
  • Plastic bag to put wet swimming wear inside at the end of the day
