Knowing what to bring to camp is a question that we get a lot. It's a balance between wanting to be prepared and being overwhelmed with too much extra "stuff." 
This packing list can help! Take a look to see what you'll need, and what you won't!


  • Casual and comfortable outdoor clothing. Campers will get dirty at camp!

  • Sneakers or other closed-toe shoes; crocs with a back are acceptable.

  • NO open shoes, sandals, slingback sneakers, or bare feet are allowed in camp. This is strictly enforced.

  • Campers without proper footwear will be sent to the Health Supervisor to call home for proper footwear.

  • Water shoes may only be worn to and from the pool or lake

  • Spare pair of socks and sneakers/shoes can be a good idea for wet days

  • Change of clothes (including underwear!)–campers may get wet during camp activities

  • Bathing suit and towel

  • Sunscreen

  • Hat, hair tie, or bandana

  • Insect repellent–non-aerosol, please!

  • Raincoat or poncho–no umbrellas, please!

  • Lunch (with a drink) marked with name and unit–lunches are kept in coolers until lunchtime.

  • Refillable water bottle labeled with name–water is provided at each unit for campers to refill their water bottles.



  • Camp Sacajawea is not responsible for lost or stolen items. It is best to just leave these items at home.

  • Cellphones are not permitted in camp; campers can be reached by calling the camp phone. 

  • Electronic Devices are not permitted at camp, this includes but not limited to iPads, iPods, e-readers, video games, and laptops.
