  • Clothes for five days
  • Shorts are a great idea... because it’s summer camp.
  • T-shirts.
  • PJ's, underclothes and socks
  • Shoes. Probably two pairs, but one pair should be gym shoes that you don’t mind getting messy. Closed toed shoes must be worn for rock climbing.
  • Also... clothes you don’t mind getting messy
  • Light sweat shirt for evening activities
  • Bathing suit/swim trunks.

Other stuff you’ll need

  • Water Bottle (Non-Disposable you can use throughout the week)

  • Bedding/sleeping bag to fit a single bed.
    • Pillow
  • Towels (for showers and swimming)
  • Toiletries. Soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.
  • Medication. All medicine must be brought in original containers and labeling. Send only enough meds for the duration of Camp. Ask your site about early medication check-in. All medications are held by the camp nurse and are in locked containers.

What NOT to bring to Camp

  • Alcohol, tobacco products, drugs.
  • Weapons of any kind (including pocket / utility knives)
  • TV’s, video games or other technology
  • Refrigerators or large items (Yes, that happens.)
  • No phones allowed at Middle School Camp. You don't need your phone for High School Camp, but you can bring it.


  • You’re trusting the Crossroads Students team with your student. We know that’s a big deal and we won’t take this responsibility lightly.
  • We’ll make the best possible decisions concerning student behavior at camp.
  • Students can be sent home from camp for violating camp or BGSU policies.
  • Campers are expected to treat others with respect. Something you think is funny may be hurtful to others. Disrespectful pranks / practical jokes may result in students being sent home.
  • Campers who destroy property, buildings, equipment, grounds, etc. will be responsible for the cost of repair or replacement. Destruction of property may result in students being sent home.
  • It’s best if campers stay out of other campers’ stuff. Stealing or violating this policy may result in students being sent home.
