Please label your camper’s belongings with his/her name. Need Labels? We have partnered with Mabel’s labels, when you purchase labels from camps.mabelslabels.com and select Camp Fire Day Camp (Central Puget Sound) from the Select Your Camp list, a portion of the proceeds will fund day campers in need of financial aid.

Clothing

Mornings are usually cool and breezy so be sure your child wears/brings a sweatshirt or jacket. Dressing in layers so your camper can peel down as the temperature warms up is best. Remember the hat and apply sunscreen at home. Send sunscreen with your campers so they can reapply it if necessary. All campers must wear socks and sturdy shoes with CLOSED heels and toes. Please, no sandals. For your child’s protection, long pants are recommended.

Lunch & Water Bottle

Bring a healthy sack lunch and beverage every day. Every camper will have the opportunity to do some outdoor cooking. We recommend a sack lunch be brought, even if your child’s counselor has let you know the group will be cooking that day. You never know when the “hot dog will fall into the fire.” Please remember to send your camper with a water bottle with their name on it every day because we want your camper to stay hydrated!

Campers entering 4th grade and up can stay on an optional overnight. Breakfast and lunch on the day following the overnight will be provided. When your counselor calls before camp, they will ask if your child plans to stay and will help facilitate who will bring tents. If you have a tent to lend to the group, please tell your child’s counselor! Night owl parents are also encouraged to volunteer for overnight supervision. At all of our overnights, at least 2 adults are awake and present at all times to ensure the safety of our campers. If you’d like to volunteer, please let your site director know!
