Snack & Lunch
Campers should bring a nut-free snack and full water bottle each day to camp. Lunch is provided each day in Benedictine University's cafeteria. Campers are encouraged to select 2 healthy food choices prior to eating dessert. Beverage choices include a variety of juices, milk, and water.
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 in permanent marker 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.
