Sunscreen: Apply sunscreen to your camper in the morning prior to drop-off, and his/her counselor will re-apply at lunch. Please pack sunscreen with your camper, and it never hurts to write their name on the bottle.
Towel: A towel that you won’t be heartbroken if returned muddy is always a good idea.
Lunch: If you didn’t select our lunch option, please pack a lunch. Most parents pack a cooler-lunch box with an ice-pack.
Shoes: Only in Kentucky would we need this reminder! Crocs are great for Camp Hi-Ho, as are aqua-socks/water shoes. Once again, something that can get wet and muddy would be preferable.
Swim suit: It is best to put your camper’s swimsuit on under their clothes.
Snack Shack money: If you pre-loaded your account during registration, you’re on top of it! If not, and you want to add money (or re-load during the week), please put cash or check in an envelope with your camper’s name on it, and hand it to your counselor!
**Please put your camper’s first and last name on every item. This makes it much easier to return items during lost & found**
Items NOT to bring
Electronics: iPads, iPhones, E-Readers, tablets, etc. Come on, it’s camp! These expensive items can be lost, rained on and damaged. It’s best to leave them at home and to let your kiddo have an unplugged experience.
Pocket knives, hammers, tools: These items are not needed. We’ve already built the fort, so no need for help from our campers.
Fishing poles: We have plenty of fishing poles for our campers, but if you must bring one, it is acceptable, but please remove the hook before loading it on the bus/car.
