Hello Families and Campers,

We at Lincoln Summer Camp are very excited to start the summer tomorrow! The staff has been hard at work this past week; setting up camp and preparing to welcome campers. A few things to keep in mind as you get ready for camp this week:

  • All campers should come to camp prepared to swim! This means wearing or packing a bathing suit and towel.
  • We will spend a great deal of time outdoors, so sunscreen is a must! Please have your camper come to camp with sunscreen already applied and more sunscreen packed in their backpack for reapplication. Remember, if you would like counselors to be able to assist your camper, you will have needed to indicate that on campdoc.com or filled out the physical form, available here.
  • Campers need to be able to carry their belongings throughout the day. Please keep this in mind when selecting and packing their bag.
  • There is time for a morning snack and lunch at camp. These are NOT provided. Please pack your child with nonperishable items; we eat a picnic style lunch.
  • Campers will be provided with a camp t-shirt before Friday’s field trips.
  • Campers should arrive at camp with a full water bottle that can be refilled throughout the day.
  • Please note our arrival and dismissal procedures – a full explanation can be found here.
