Packing List

Packing List

All clothing/shoes brought to camp should be inexpensive and made for outdoor activity. Please label all items brought to camp including towels and luggage to ensure your camper leaves with everything he/she came with. We recommend packing in a soft duffle that can be stored under your camper’s bed during the week.

Cell Phone Policy

Camp Longleaf is a cell-phone free environment. We believe that by having our campers “un-plug,” they will engage with the outside world and gain more from their camp experience. Going cell-phone free has many benefits for camp...
  • Promote socialization among campers
  • Remove the divide between “the haves and the have-nots” in each cabin
  • Reduce stress associated with damage, loss or theft of electronics
  • Reduce home sickness by focusing on camp rather than situations or people at home
  • Give your children a much needed break from the world of technology
Please DO NOT send your child to camp with a phone. We understand that it can be hard but this policy is in the best interest of your child and their experience. If a camper is discovered using a cell phone, it will be confiscated and kept in the camp office until pick-up.
