Camper Packing List

Packing For Camp

Kawaga is a place to be comfortable. So, we encourage you to pack casual and comfortable clothing for your son. Northern Wisconsin summer temperatures can vary greatly; so, please carefully follow our full packing list.

It’s REQUIRED that every article of clothing, bedding, and equipment (sports equipment, flashlights, cameras, etc.) be clearly marked with your child’s full name. Please mark clothing with woven or washable printed name tapes, which are the only safe ways to be help make sure that nothing gets lost as well as for proper identification in the laundry. As you can imagine, it is impossible to return lost items when they are not labeled.


We do require that each camper arrive with (2) Kawaga T-shirts and jersey, which can be purchased directly from our website. We have partnered with one of the best camp suppliers in the country for our store, and the items are sent directly to you your home. For your convenience, the store is open 365 days a year.



The Do-Not-Bring List

We believe the following items have no place at Kawaga. So, please respect our rules and do not send any of the following items to camp with your son:

  • Cellphones
  • Portable DVD players
  • Portable televisions
  • Portable video-game systems or electronic games of any kinds
  • Laptop or tablet computers
  • Hot pots / hot plates / kettles
  • Walkie talkies
  • Candles, lighters, matches
  • Knives or pellet guns
  • Sharpie markers

Screen Policy

We believe that camp is the time and place to happily disconnect. So, we do not allow any devices that have a screen, can connect to the Internet, communicate with other devices, or play games. Personal music devices, like an Apple Shuffle or I-Pod Nano, are permitted to play music in the cabin.We feel so strongly about this rule that any camper found with a banned device may be suspended or dismissed from camp activities. Please allow your kids to enjoy the beautiful Northwoods unplugged!

Food & Candy Policy

For safety reasons, we require that campers and staff not bring any food, candy, or drinks into camp. We have campers with severe food allergies and do not want to risk any child having an allergic reaction.
