Preparing for Camp

Camp Guide & Links

Camp Checklist

  • Water Bottle: Bring your own every day!
  • Uniform T-Shirt (provided on the first day of the session)
  • Running Shoes (no “Heelies” or sandals)
  • Bathing Suit – Everyone will participate in a daily recreational swim  
  • Towel – ONLY if enrolled in "Aquatic Games & Water Sports" - Campers will be provided a towel for our recreational swim  
  • Lunch & Snacks: There is no refrigerator and no access to vending machines or cafeterias. Consider sending lunches in re-usable containers, and remember we’re nut-free!

A note on electronics: One of the goals of camp is to provide campers with unique experiences at McMaster. Electronic devices - games, phones, music players, etc. - while great for individual entertainment, do not readily encourage socialization at camp and often present challenges, especially when they go missing. We ask that all electronics be left at home for the duration of camp, and promise to provide an awesome experience to keep campers engaged throughout their session!
