Packing for Camp
You will receive a catalog from The Camp Spot, our official camp outfitter with a suggested packing list. This catalog will be a big help as you start to pack for the summer. Don’t forget to label EVERYTHING! That includes clothing, sports equipment, shoes and hats.
We are not a uniform camp, but each camper will need to have a few Camp Wayne items for out of camp trips and games. These required items will be highlighted in the catalog. Ordering with The Camp Spot is easy and can be done in a few different ways:
- Online at www.thecampspot.com where there will be a customized Camp Wayne for Boys web store for you to view all of our required and optional logo items
- Via the Camp Spot order form, which you will find in the catalog
- At a Camp Spot road show (locations and schedule will be in the catalog) where your child can try on the clothing and you can place your order with them directly
- Visit the Camp Spot showroom in Livingston, NJ
You may also use The Camp Spot to help you shop for other clothing and equipment that your child will need for camp.What not to Pack
- Portable DVD players
- Expensive clothing, equipment, jewelry, etc…
- Playing cards
- Wheelies (sneakers with wheels)
- Flammables (Fireworks, matches, lighters)
- Cell Phones
- Cash (There’s nothing to spend money on at camp, and lost money cannot be replaced. We recommend travelers checks if you want your son to have additional spending money for trips out of camp).
