Lands’ End will be happy to put the Akeela logo or your camper’s monogram on any of their (applicable) items. Please keep in mind that purchasing items from Lands’ End is strictly optional except for the one required white or grey Akeela t-shirt.

Please allow 5-7 days fulfillment of your orders. ORDER EARLY TO INSURE ON-TIME DELIVERY! Please don’t hesitate to call the Camp Outfitters at Lands’ End directly with any questions about camp clothing: 800-995-8711.

Laundry

Laundry will go out weekly and be returned the following day in individual color coded laundry bags provided by camp. Please remember, laundry is done by a commercial laundry, and expensive/fancy clothes are not appropriate or necessary for camp.

Prohibited Items

Each camper is provided with a cubby and an under bed container to store his/her belongings. Please do not send extra storage containers or drawer units, as there is no space for these. We appreciate your understanding.
Also, please do not send or allow your camper to bring any of the following items to camp:

  • Any type of toy gun (including foam, water, dart)
  • Knives or any other type of weapon (including Swiss Army or Boy Scout types)
  • Any type of tobacco product, drugs or alcohol

Important Note for 2021

One of the reasons we have made this Handbook available on our website, rather than sending it by snail mail, is that we anticipate making changes well into the spring, as we learn more about how COVID-19 will affect our plans for this summer. To be clear, camp is definitely opening and we’re ready to keep our campers healthy and safe in any scenario. However, current conditions, as well as guidance from health professionals and the State of Vermont, might affect some of our programs, schedules, policies, etc.
