Should I Pack...

Our staff have put together a daily program packed full of awesome and fun things for your camper to do! Therefore, there is no need for your camper to entertain themselves, so items such as electronic devices, books/magazines, and sports equipment should remain at home. It's also a good idea while packing to ask yourself, "Would my child be allowed to bring this to school?" If the answer is no, it's probably not suitable for camp either.

We'll make sure your camper is having a blast without any of these things! At the beginning of the week, we will ask the campers if they have packed any of these items and check if necessary. If found, we'll gather the items and store them in a safe place during the week and return them at pick up.

One Other Cool Thing...

Pine Cove has an app called "CampLife" that allows you to view and share photos, send and receive electronic mail, and more! You can read all about this cool app on our blog. Make sure you download it from Google Play or the Apple App Store before you drop your camper off at Pine Cove!
