Packing list

Packing tips

Packing for camp is the start of your child’s independent camp experience. Please have your child participate in packing for camp so that he/she knows where to find his/her clothing and other items. Campers who don’t participate in packing often don’t know what they have or where to find things at camp, which makes it harder to get acclimated to camp.


The less clothing packed, the better! One duffel and a suitcase is the maximum amount of luggage needed at camp. Shelves are provided in the dorms so there is room for everything to be unpacked.


Please label all items (even underwear and socks). We are not responsible for any lost items. If any found items have a name that is clearly marked (no initials), we will do our best to get them back to you. You may be billed for postage. To order labels, login to your CampInTouch Account and click on Camper Clothing Labels.

What to Bring

We dress informally at camp; it is recommended that you do not buy or send new clothing for your camper. The last night is a special event; We ask that everyone bring one nice outfit for Friday night as if they were attending a dinner at a trendy restaurant.

Cell Phones

We continue to enforce a no cell-phone policy at Camp MasterChef. When your child comes to our camps, he/she will be asked to give the Camp Directors their cell phones and are permitted only during scheduled times for calls.

Sun Protection

It is a requirement that everyone in Camp has a hat for protection from the sun. Be sure to send plenty of sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15.

What NOT to bring

DO NOT bring electronics, weapons, hunting knives, squirt guns, matches, lighters, candles, sparklers or fireworks, chewing gum, food (nut products are not allowed on camp), or expensive jewelry.

For campers traveling by air, iPod touches, cell phones and travel documents will be held in the camp office safe.

Medication must be kept at the nurses office.

Bed Wetting

Our staff is trained in how to handle bed wetting issues. They know that bed wetting can happen & staff is taught to be discreet in such cases. The staff ensures that the camper’s sheets are washed while the campers are out of the cabin. If you anticipate a case of bed wetting, please pack one extra set of sheets.


Laundry is done only during the 2 weeks sessions on Saturdays. Please pre-wash all new colored clothing. The laundry is returned to camp on Monday. All laundry is done in cold water; please leave delicates at home.
