What To Bring To Camp:
Help your kids stay active! Switch out those computer and phone screens for some sunscreen. Check out what you need to bring to camp and to leave at home. Please remember that the Y is NOT responsible for lost or stolen items. Label all items with your camper’s name.
A Great Attitude
If your child arrives at Camp with a great attitude and is looking forward to having fun, they are going to have a great time.
Lunch will be provided by Kokomo Center Schools for the STEM Camp program attendees, but we welcome you to send your child’s lunch with your their name clearly written on it. We do not have refrigeration or microwave capabilities so please pack accordingly. Lunches may be brought in a lunch bag or if it needs to be kept cool, please use a lunchbox with cooler packs.
Bathing Suit & Towel
Make sure to pack the swimsuit and towel in a plastic bag. It is also a good idea to mark the child’s first and last name on both the towel and the suit. We also ask that swimsuits be modest for both boys and girls.
Swim Goggles and/or Ear Plugs
If your child prefers swim goggles or ear plugs for lessons, make sure to pack them as we do not have extras here at Camp. Goggles cannot cover the nose or mouth. Please label the goggles with your child’s name.
Please apply to your child before dropping off. Our counselors will remind campers to apply their sunscreen. Make sure to match the SPF with your child’s needs.
Please apply to your child before dropping off. Our counselors will remind campers and assist them in spraying. Make sure to match the best fit of bug spray with your child’s needs. We will be in a heavily wooded area.
Active campers get thirsty and need refreshment often, so make sure that you send a water bottle with them. Please make sure to label the water bottles! We will have water stations for refills throughout the camp.
We ask that you please leave at home the following items: Electronics, toys, phones, weapons, tobacco products, illegal drugs and alcohol.
What to Wear
Always make sure your child is wearing tennis shoes. Campers will not be permitted on our grounds in sandals, flip-flops, or croc-style shoes. Dress for the weather. The camp day will continue rain or shine. Campers are very active during camp. Therefore, have your camper wear “play clothes” that can become dirty or muddy.
If prescription medications need to be administered during camp hours, all medications must be in the original container that identifies the prescribing physician, the name of the medication, the dosage, and the frequency of administration. All medication must be turned in to the Camp Office, and the parent/guardian must fill out a Medication Authorization Form. DO NOT PACK MEDICATION IN BACKPACKS.
