Camp Carew Campers Should Bring

Camp Carew Campers Should NOT Bring

Because there are so many exciting things to do at Camp Carew, there are a few things that we ask campers to leave at home. If any of these things accidentally make it to camp, you can send them home with your parents at registration, or we can keep them securely in the camp office until it's time to head home.

However, if we find someone has brought a controlled substance to camp, the item will be confiscated and further action may be required.
