Things to Remember When Packing for Camp!

  • Please remember to mark all clothing with your camper’s name.

  • Clothing will get dirty so pack accordingly.

  • Please ensure you have enough of each item to last the entire length of camp, with a few extras (6 days and 5 nights).

  • Brigadoon is not responsible for the loss or damage of items and clothing. 

  • We do not have a tuck shop, so campers do not need to bring money.

  • If you or your camper forget something or are not able to pick something up before camp, don’t worry! We have extras of almost all of these things onsite.

  • YOU MUST pack ALL medications in their original packaging, in a ZipLock bag with your camper’s name on it. Please make sure that you send enough of each medication to last the full week, plus a few extras just in case!
