What To Bring To Camp for Voyageurs & Ridgerunners

Key Considerations For Out-trip Packing  

  • Quick drying non-cotton materials are best for trip (synthetic fabric or wool are great options). These materials keep their insulating qaulities even when wet. Cotton is NOT recommended as a clothing layer on a camping trip. Wet or damp cotton draws heat from the body and is difficult to dry on trip.  

  • Synthetic or wool long underwear on a cold morning or during a rainy day makes the difference between comfort and distressing cold; synthetic or wool long underwear is light, easy to carry and easy to dry. 

  • If you are unsure of what items to pack, send it all to camp with your child and our staff will help your camper make the best choice on packing day. Weight is an important consideration for camping trips where you move from site to site, so excess gear will not be packed. Whatever is not used will be stored safely at camp during the out-trip.
