SUGGESTED CLOTHING LIST

Remember: Please label ALL items!!

This list is intended as a suggested packing list with ideas of what your child might need at camp. It is not required to bring every single item on this list. Please feel free to adjust for your child(ren) and contact us with any questions.

Mask Information for Kayitz 2021:

Vaccinated campers should bring at least 10 disposable masks for each session they will be at camp.

Unvaccinated campers will need a fresh mask every day. To ensure that each person has sufficient masks for camp, please send your camper with a box of 50 disposable masks for each session that they will be at camp.

If you child prefers to wear a reusable mask, please follow these guidelines:

  • Follow the CDC’s Guide to Masks, which specifies two or more layers and how to obtain a good fit for your child.
  • If your child will be relying primarily on reusable masks, please send 14 masks as these masks must be washed after a single use and there is a ten-day laundry cycle at camp.
  • Please send your camper with a box of 50 disposable masks for each session that they will be at camp, to serve as back-up to the reusable masks.
