Packing List

This list is a suggested list of the bare minimum a child will need. We recommend that you pack your camper’s belongings in a large Rubbermaid-type tote box. This makes it easy for campers to keep their things together and easy for parents to clean out when they come home!

NEW IN 2019: If you're interested in one-stop shopping, you can go to to purchase our packing list items!

Clearly mark items with camper's name; this will help in finding lost items. Lost items are kept for two weeks and then are donated to charity. 

Looking to buy labels?  Support Camp Ernst scholarships at the same time by purchasing premade labels at and selecting YMCA Camp Ernst.
