  • bring snacks if you would like, we will have bins with names on them. DO NOT BRING ANYTHING CONTAINING PEANUTS OR PEANUT BUTTER.
  • flashlight, for nighttime wandering in areas that may not be well lit.
  • a watch/phone, this will help you keep up with the different activities and workshops as well as mandatory group check ins. an alarm clock is also recommended if you are a heavy sleeper.
  • water bottle, extremely necessary, be sure to label your bottle with your name.
  • plenty of t-shirts and shorts for the week, as well as a pair of pants for night time, it's summer but it could be chilly at night.
  • shoes & socks for hiking and outdoor activities
  • swimsuit
  • pool towel
  • sandals for walking
  • shower sandals 
  • sunhat and sunglasses
  • towels and wash cloths (bring 2 of each)
  • light jacket and rain coat if desired
  • daypack for hikes and outings
  • sleeping bag (or bring sheets and blankets) and pillow
  • toiletries such as: shampoo, soap, razors, toothpaste/toothbrush, hairbrush/comb, lip balm, etc.
  • medications in original prescription bottle and clearly labeled to be given to Camp Medic, these must also be noted on your camper health form.
  • insect repellent
  • sunscreen
  • personal sanitizer in gel or wipe form
  • pens/pencils
  • notebook, sketchpad or journal
  • camera
  • supplies for your workshop (if hosting one)
  • There isn't a great signal at camp but you can bring your phone and try it (most campers just use their phones for pictures, music or for an alarm clock and/or watch).  ACC has allowed us to make phone calls from phones in the lobby and all the dorms, even long distance.
  • games to share
  • musical instruments (labeled)
  • ear plugs, especially if you are a light sleeper
  • if you'd like to participate in the talent show bring any items you will need
  • there is usually a workshop that involves fun things with shirts or bandannas, cloth bags, or other cloth things. so it's a good idea to bring a white shirt, blank canvas bag, white hankies/bandannas...anything you might want to dye, print on, sharpie, alter, etc. just in case!
