Packing for Camp

Pack clothing that is comfortable in New England weather, suitable for outdoor games, and can get wet and/or dirty without being ruined. Campers should not pack clothing that promotes alcohol, tobacco, drug use, sexual behavior, or contains inappropriate language. Pineshore expects a high standard of conduct and dress. Please no spaghetti straps, bare mid-riffs, or improper slogans. Shorts should be modest (not too tight, too high, or too low), and bathing suits should be one piece or modest. We reserve the right to ask campers to change improper clothing.
