Camp Clothing and Laundry

Purchasing Camp Clothing

CampSpot is our official camp supplier. To see our page on CampSpot, simply type Akeela where it asks for Camp Name on their home page. There is lots of great Akeela gear in our camp store, but only the basic logo’d lightweight cotton t-shirt is required.

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
  • Pets or any other animals

Important Note

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 to it as we approach the 2022 camp season. In particular, it currently contains some information that is specific to the summer of 2021, when COVID-19 greatly affected our policies, procedures and programs. Needless to say, much remains to be seen about the pandemic’s status come June 2022.
