Vagabonds and Night Owl campers should have a small day pack or fanny pack for extended time away from the Vagland Tent Site. Camper gear will be brought to the Chapel at the end of camp.

What Not to Bring

iPod type items, MP3 players, cd/tape players, radios, computers, electronic games (PSP, Nintendo DS, handheld pocket electric games, etc.), cell phones, fireworks, weapons, pop and snack foods, pets, extremely valuable or sentimental items, and personal sports equipment.

Any of these items brought to camp will be stored in the camp office and returned to the camper before departure for home. This includes car keys from High School campers.

Any camper possessing or using tobacco products, alcohol, drugs, or weapons will be subject to immediate dismissal from Camp with no refund.

Canteen (Camp Store)

All campers put their funds into a Camp Store account and a record of purchases is kept. This record and any excess funds are returned to the camper at the end of the week. The Camp Store is open normally twice each day and will include camp clothing, as well as water bottles, sunglasses, and other “dollar type” souvenir items. Snacks including: gatorade, chips, jerky, ice cream products, candy and other items may be available. The amount of snack food sold to each camper will be limited each period. The recommended spending allowance is $20-$25 per camper.

Lost and Found

Please be sure you have all your camper’s belongings before leaving Camp.  All items left behind will be held in our Lost and Found until September 1, after which they will be donated. You will be responsible for postage charges if you ask for items to be sent to you.


The camper’s family will be responsible for providing or arranging transportation home.

Vehicles should remain parked on site throughout the week.


Any early departures or time away for special events must be cleared through the camp office ahead of time. Campers participating in special events must be picked up and returned at the camp office by an adult.

No camper will be permitted to leave camp without written parental/guardian permission on record.
