Children are responsible for carrying their own belongings.
You may be wondering what will my child do while at camp with little to no outside materials. Your child will play. Children will have the opportunity to explore the environment and play uninterrupted for extended periods of time. This will allow them to use their imaginations and get deep into their play where learning and understanding of themselves and the world happens.
