New To your child attending Indiana Camp?
First of all, let us welcome you to one of the great experiences of your child’s life.
Here is a list of things that you should bring for your child.
- There is a twin sized bunk bed that all students sleep in.
- Bring a twin sheet, fitted, and a regular twin sheet
- Bring a pillow
- It can be cold at night, so a blanket is a necessity.
- An option can be a sleeping bag
- You need soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste & hair stuff
- Bring a couple of towels, you can rotate towels so you don’t have to have one everyday.
- There is a morning service, so casual clothes can be worn to the day service
- Play clothes for the afternoon recreation time
- Semi-dress to dress clothes for evening service.
- Most camps have events to play in or have recreation time after the evening service, so encourage (Demand) your child to change after church.
- Don’t pack new clothes for play, because they can be ruined. grass stained, getting wet or muddy is pretty common.
- We serve three meals a day, starting with Monday night’s dinner at 4:30pm
- There is a a snack bar available after service. It will cost $5 – $10, depending on what your child chooses
- Daily snacks
- You can pack a few snacks so your child does not have to buy snacks every day.
- There is an ice cream stand available during select times of the day and evening.
- We will also have Pizza available every night after church for a nominal fee.
- Extra money
- I would put extra for them in envelopes say $5 in 5 different envelopes labeled Mon. Tue. etc. with the child’s name on it. Give to one of the dorm supervisor to pass out each day to the child. This helps from losing all there Money at once.
- There will be a water and shaving cream fight at SS camps, so they will need some clothes they can get really dirty in.
- A dirty clothes trash bag or hamper is helpful.
