Your camper is going to have a blast at Xtreme camp! There are so many fun things for your camper to do, so there is no need for your camper to bring electronic devices or sports equipment. These items should remain at home. Another great idea while packing is to ask yourself, “Would my child be allowed to bring this to school?” If the answer is no, then it’s probably not suitable for camp either. At the beginning of the week, we will ask the campers if they have packed any of these items. If they have, we will gather the items and store them in a safe place during the week. The items will be returned to them at the end of the week.
what to bring
what not to bring
Our goal in developing a dress standard is to be both modest and practical. However, dress standards can often be a source of tension, especially among girl campers. In today’s society, the “less is more” mentality is displayed through low cut jeans and shorts, tight or revealing tops and short shorts. Please understand that Woodlands is committed to protecting the innocence of your child while they are in our care. With this in mind, we will ask campers who are inappropriately dressed (wearing articles of clothing not consistent with Woodlands’ dress standard) to change. We appreciate your sensitivity to this subject matter, as it is our goal to create an impactful, unforgettable camp environment that is free from distractions.
spelunking and camping in the cave
Be prepared to get muddy! The best attire to wear in the cave is old pants (with a belt or drawstring), long sleeves and old shoes. The temperature in the cave is a constant 58 degrees. While you are moving around in the cave, you will not be cold. However, it would be a good idea to bring an extra layer of clothing once you outside of the cave. It can get cool at night.
