Packing List

Camp Packs Are Available

The packing list below is only a guide. Washing machines and ironing facilities are not available at camp. All articles (including luggage) should be labeled with camper's first and last name. Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is not responsible for any damage to or loss of personal items. Please limit luggage to two pieces.

How to Prevent Lost Items

Mark all camper's belongings with her first and last name. This should include pillows, towels, and even toothpaste and other toiletries. When packing for camp, be sure that your camper is helping, so she will know where everything is in her suitcase or trunk. Please leave valuables at home. Camp is hard on clothing and jewelry because of dirt and mildew. Before you leave camp, be sure to check that your daughter has everything loaded into your car!

All lost items will stay at camp until the last session is over. To recover lost items, you will have to make arrangements with the camp to return to pick them up. GSSJC is not responsible for articles left or lost at camp. Any items not claimed by the owner by the Saturday after the last session will be disposed of or donated to charity.

Camp Policy

No weapons of any type, alcoholic beverages, cigarettes or illegal drugs may be brought on the campsite. Anyone in violation of this policy will be sent home immediately. No electric appliance of any kind including fans, curling irons, CD players, Game Boys, MP3 players, etc. are allowed. Campers are not permitted to have cell phones at camp. Any of these items will be collected by staff and handed into the camp office for return to the parent at the end of the session.
