PACKING FOR CAMP
Packing for Camp:
There are no laundry facilities at the Eau Claire County Youth Camp, so pack enough clothing for two weeks. It can be helpful to send a small amount of laundry detergent with your campers so they can hand wash smaller items. There are clothes lines set up around each cabin. In case there is an urgent laundy situation, our staff will launder items and will debit the cost on the camper's camp account.

Special clothes/items to consider bringing:
There will be occasions when you will want to wear a Norwegian costume if you have one, as well as other dressy outfits and funny costume-wear.
Parents - Please Take Note:
American books, candy, and music are not allowed to be used during the camp session. These items will be held for you until camp is over.
We also do not allow cell phones, tablets, kindle readers, smart devices, computers, etc. These items can be distracting to our program. Thank you for your cooperation. Digital cameras are certainly allowed.
Bring Norwegian Replacements!
Campers are encouraged to seek out Norsk replacements for music, magazines, and books if they feel inclined to do so.
Many campers find it useful to have a Norwegian/English Pocket Dictionary or Phrase Book. These items are certainly not required, but you may find them to be helpful during the 2 week stay.
