Don't worry - any items you add to your cart in any window will stay put - just refresh this page to see your new additions.

If you have any questions about the list: The best people to contact are your summer camp administrators.

If you have any questions about our items: The best way to contact us is via email - We're usually back to you in under 24 hours (a little longer on weekends)

We Recommend: Bringing old/used items to camp whenever possible - these items will be used hard and may never make it home.  

Wahanowin Helpful Hints:

  1. Label everything clearly and permanently - clothing (including socks and underwear), shoes, towels, sports equipment, sleeping bags, cameras, flashlights, toothbrush, etc.
  2. Pack belongings in duffel bags and label with baggage tags (will be mailed to you). No suitcases or trunks are allowed. Campers may bring a small carry on for the bus ride. Campers must restrict their belongings to only two duffel bags maximum and one carry on. Campers with excessive amounts of clothing will be asked to remove portions of their belongings to be placed in storage or taken home. Snacks for the bus ride must be nut free. All leftover food will be taken upon arrival to camp.
  3. Do not send expensive clothing or equipment - campers play in all kinds of weather. Although all reasonable precautions are taken, the camp is not responsible for loss, damage or theft of any belongings in transit or at camp.
  4. The following list is only a suggestion of what to bring. We encourage parents to use what they have on hand and limit any new purchases. Laundry is sent out once per week, therefore pack accordingly.
