What to Bring
The atmosphere of the camp is similar to that which would prevail at your summer cottage and this should influence what you bring. Informality and comfort are key words regarding clothing, since we dress casually on all occasions, including the meal hour.
For warm days; shorts, T-shirts, swimsuits, hats, sandals; and suntan lotion
For cool days or evenings; pants; sweaters; shoes and rain wear just in case
For Friday night banquet dinners, a white blouse or shirt is usually worn
Toilet articles; towels; special medicines; insect repellent; bandaids; fillable water bottles; a SMALL combination lock or padlock for the personal lock boxes that are installed inside of each cabin to store small personal items or medicines
Sleeping bags; mattress covers; sheets; blankets; and pillows – most beds are single bunks. For the LIT overnight camping trip (15 year olds), bring a ground sheet
Don’t forget your:
Camera; binoculars; flashlights; reading lights; night light; fan; fishing equipment; folding camp chairs; and musical instruments.
Each week there is a camper show, in which people act, do skits, sing, tell jokes, and so on, there is a prop room in the recreation hall but you may wish to bring your own costumes and props. Visit our Weekly Themes page before you come to camp to see what fun activities are planned for your week at Red Pine.
Parents with young children might bring games, coloring books, crayons to amuse them on wet days.
NOT PERMITTED: Pets and firearms; pup tents or tents for sleeping outside your cabin.
