Campers should wear comfortable clothes that can get messy. We suggest packing a change of clothes and/or a smock. Campers should bring a reusable water bottle, hat and indoor shoes. Campers should bring a lunch and two snacks. Lunches should be ready-to-eat, as there is no access to kitchen appliances. Campers should not bring peanut/nut products. Campers should not share food items with one another. Campers are encouraged not to bring personal toys. Cell phones are to be safely stowed away. NPCC is not responsible for lost/stolen or damaged items.

Photo identification will be requested at every sign-out. Parents/guardians must review any medication with the Programs Coordinator on the first day of camp.
