- Phone use is limited to a camp phone. "No news is good news." Do not try to reach the adult leaders as reception is poor.
- No food in the Troop campsite (there are animals and we want to discourage uninvited visitors).
- Suggest 2 towels as we'll be doing a lot of water activities.
- No open toed shoes (sandals, flip flops, etc. are not allowed).
- A clothesline would be handy to dry swim trunks and towels.
- Please label everything you do not want lost.
