  • What to Bring to Camp

    Packing for California summer camps is very important. We make the following recommendations:
    1. When you pack for camp, involve your children in the process. The better he/she knows what they have brought, the better they will be able to keep track of it once at camp!
    2. Make sure all articles of clothing and supplies are properly and securely LABELED.
    3. Do not send expensive clothing, jewelry, watches, accessories, etc. Canyon Creek Summer Camp is not responsible for lost or stolen clothing and personal belongings.
    4. Pack belongings in a duffle bag or trunk – keep in mind that campers will each have one drawer and limited hanging space (if necessary) but most belongings will be kept either under or at the foot of their beds.
    The following are suggestions for a 2-week stay at camp:
