Packing List

August 11-14, 2016

Camp Chihopi cabin interior

This is a suggested list of clothing and supplies for camp. Please do not feel that you have to purchase any of the items on this list. It would also be helpful to mark each item with your child’s name or initials. Feel free to improvise and substitute, but please pack the basics! It’s best to pack old towels and clothes. Old play clothes and comfortable shoes are the best!

Your child should NOT bring iPads, cell phones, or electronic games to camp. These valuable items may be misplaced or lost. (Also, there won’t be any time to use them!) It is not necessary to bring money to camp since the facility does not have a camp store. Snacks will be provided several times a day.

On Thursday night for the Get-To-Know Activities, all campers are requested to wear their favorite Camp Chihopi T-shirt from a past year. If this is your child’s first year at camp, he/she can wear the 2016 T-shirt given at registration.

The theme for the Chihopi 2016 event on Saturday night is “Chihopi Summer Olympics.” Although costumes (and accessories!) are optional, your child is invited to attend dressed for the theme.
