Camp T-shirt & Gym shoes

For protection and easy identification, campers are required to wear gym shoes and their official camp T-shirt every day. Extra T-shirts can be purchased for $10 each. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather.

Please check ingredients before sending your child with a snack as we will not be providing a snack if your child(ren) is not able to eat their own. If your child is not able to eat their snack, a note will be sent home with them with reasoning. Lunch is provided each day in Benedictine University's cafeteria. Campers are encouraged to select 2 healthy food choices (e.g. sandwich or steamed vegetables) prior to eating dessert. Beverage choices include a variety of juices, milk, and water.

Supplies

Campers should bring a backpack with a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day. All items should be labeled in permanent marker with your child's full name and carried in a small tote bag/backpack, also labeled with your child's full name.

It is not necessary for a camper to bring any other items to camp. Other personal items brought for open recreation use (books, balls, gloves, etc.) are permitted, but these items will only be allowed during open recreation times and must be stored in their backpack otherwise. All items should be marked with the camper's full name. Small items such as playing cards, bouncy balls, etc. are not encouraged, as they are easily lost. Campers are responsible for their own items. Summer Fun Day Camp is not responsible for any items lost, damaged, or broken.

Electronic devices such as cameras, iPods, or video game players are not allowed at camp. Any items which the Camp Director deems to be potentially dangerous, harmful or problematic are not allowed.
