Packing List

Birch Rock, an overnight Maine Summer Camp, recommends that all items that a camper brings to camp should be clearly labeled with the camper’s name. We try our hardest to return all items in the lost and found when the boys are packing up to head home. Despite our best efforts, there are usually a large number of unlabeled towels, Birch Rock shirts, water bottles, and other assorted items in the lost and found at the end of every summer.
We recommend that every camper bring the following items to camp:


  • 2 sets of twin sheets with pillow cases
  • 2 blankets
  • A pillow


  • 4 towels (2 bath and 2 beach)
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Shampoo and soap
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug repellent


  • 6 Birch Rock shirts (2 maroon and 4 grey)
  • 8 t-shirts
  • 6 shorts (2 khaki)
  • 2 long pants (jeans / khaki)
  • 2-3 swim trunks
  • 8 pair of athletic socks
  • 2 pair wool hiking socks
  • 8 underwear
  • Warm jacket or shirt
  • Sweatshirt
  • Raincoat with a hood or a poncho


  • Laundry Bag
  • Athletic shoes with laces
  • Hiking boots that are broken in

Other suggested items:

  • Off-road mountain bike (must be 12 or older) and mandatory helmet
  • Baseball glove
  • Lacrosse stick
  • Tennis racket
  • Fishing rod
  • Sandals / beach shoes (NO flip flops)
  • Framed backpack for hiking
  • Sleeping bag
