For children in Day Camp, Drama Juniors, and Inventors & Explorers Camp, please pack a change of clothing, labeled with your child’s name, to keep at camp.
Sneakers are required for camp. Campers participate in many sports and movement activities. If your child chooses to wear sandals to camp, a pair of sneakers must also be brought in for sports and dance activities.
Campers are required to bring in their own lunch and a drink every day. Refrigeration is provided at camp. Please pack lunches in paper bags or lunch coolers and put the child’s name on each bag. Marymount Summer Camp is a “nut sensitive” environment. As we have several campers with food allergies, no peanut or tree nut products are allowed at camp. The camp will provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack every day.
Campers participate in outdoor activities every day. Please put sunscreen on your child every morning before camp. Please also pack additional sunscreen with your child’s belongings for re-application during the day.

Bathing suits should be worn under the child’s clothes on these days. Please pack a towel, terry cloth robe or cover-up, and flip-flops for your child to wear to the pool. Do not forget an extra pair of underwear. The camp will provide swim caps.
For children in World Explorers Day Camp, Drama Juniors, and Inventors & Explorers Camp, please pack a bathing suit, towel, water shoes, and cover-up, all labeled with your child’s name, to keep on premises.
