What to Bring to Camp

Dormitory students should bring:
  • Bed linens (twin size)
      Flat sheets are best as the mattresses may be slightly different sizes. Also, the dormitory can get quite chilly at night; we suggest you bring a blanket.
  • Towels and washcloths
  • Toiletries
      Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, etc.
  • Clothes for each day of camp
      Be sure to include dress clothes for competition day.

      The dorms are air conditioned. However, if you need additional air, bring an electric fan.
