Campers will need to provide their own basic supplies to fully participate in some virtual camp activities. Registered families will receive a list of recommended supplies for the program selected. Most will be similar to supplies used for school or home crafts (such as tape, string, and scissors) or may be collected in nature (sticks, leaves, rocks). If you will have a problem providing any of the materials on your supplied list, please let us know.
