Camp Royall Packing List

Packing Tips

  • We suggest packing full outfits by day in a labeled gallon ZipLock bag (one back for Monday, Tuesday, etc.)
  • LABEL ALL ITEMS. If items are not labeled, we cannot ensure your item will return home to you.
  • We have a PDF packing list that you can fill out and include with belongings as a tool for end-of-program packing.
  • Camp Royall is not responsible for lost, damaged, or broken items.
  • Send only what your camper needs for their stay at camp.
  • If accidents/messes are common, you may want to increase the number of relevant items.
  • If obtaining all items on this packing list is a burden for your family, please contact us in the office and we will work to assist you (919-542-1033).
  • Suggested quantity for each item is based on attending for one week of residential camp. If attending a weekend program, subtract 3 from the quantity, generally.
