What to Expect

Camp is an awesome experience! We can’t wait for your camper to join us this summer! We know that while camp can be exciting, it can also bring questions, especially if it is your child’s first time away. This information is to help your child get to know the Forest Glen camp experience.

Be ready for outdoor adventures! Check the packing list for your specific camp, but generally, you will want to bring the following items (LABEL EVERYTHING!):

  • Swimsuit, Towel, Sunscreen, Water shoes, Hat
  • Clothing suitable for active outdoor activities
  • Overnight camps:
    • Sleeping bag or twin sheet set & pillow

Prices range from $1 – $25.
