What to Bring

While we will provide most of the things you’ll need for a comfortable stay, we can’t provide everything! Here are some items that you will want with you to maximize your comfort.


Bring whatever you think you’ll need for your stay. You can drive right up to the facilities, so there is no need to worry about space. We recommend the following extra layers:

  • Raincoat
  • Warm layers for sleeping
  • Technical, quick drying layers for adventuring
  • Sun hat and warm hat


This one is more up to you, depending on your activities. There are a few places in town to pick up forgotten gear items, but for your stay at our camp specifically, things you might want to have are:

  • Headlamp
  • Toiletries
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen


We’ve got this one covered. We will provide three meals and a snack with each night’s stay you book. However, we understand that growing kids might need additional snacks when out exploring so feel free to bring what you’ll need in addition, and we can store it safely for you.
