We have provided you with a checklist of all the items campers will need during a stay at camp. For a two-week stay, we are unable to provide laundry service, except in the case of and emergency. If a camper stays longer than two weeks, we will make sure his laundry is washed. Please label your camper’s clothing to prevent him/her from losing it at camp.

In an effort to provide the safest and most enjoyable camping experience for our entire community, we ask that parents and campers work together to help CSM prevent, as best we camp, disruptive or harmful items being brought onto our camp grounds. An excellent cooperative strategy is for parents to help their child pack their belongings for their stay at camp.

On the first evening your child spends at camp, his counselors will lead the entire cabin in a luggage inventory during which we will catalog their items packed and also help ensure he/she returns home with all that was brought. Thereafter, CSM staff will take appropriate steps, through inspections announced or unannounced, to maintain our expectations of a safe summer camp.

The above states policy has been adopted in an effort to make the camp safe and secure for all campers. We appreciate the cooperation of our campers and parents in this very important matter.
