OSU Summer Choir Camp Packing List

PERSONAL ITEMS

  • Comfortable Clothing and Shoes.
  • Casual clothes: Sports clothes/shoes, Sneakers, Rain jacket or umbrella, Hat, and Sweater or sweatshirt
  • Concert attire:  Camp T-shirt (provided) and Jeans
  • Alarm clock/Cell phone
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Personal hygiene items, including shampoo and conditioner, body wash etc.

MUSIC ITEMS

  • Vocal Solo you want to work on while at camp
  • Any thing you might need to appropriately participate in the Talent Show (guitar, ukulele, background music, props, costumes, etc.)

ROOM ESSENTIALS

  • Basic toiletries (Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc.)
  • Basic dorm linens are provided (sheets, blanket, 1 pillow, and towel), but you may wish to bring your own.
  • We recommend bringing your own towel and flip flops for the shower!
  • The dorm rooms do not have air conditioning, you may bring a fan.

ELECTRONICS

If you decide to bring personal electronic devices (such as cell phones, laptop computers, ipods, cameras, etc), please understand the following:

  • There is no place to secure them when not in use and when you are not in your room.
  • The rooms do not have safes and there is no lockable location for them to be kept.
  • These items are your responsibility. The camps are not responsible for damage, theft, or loss of any personal item.
  • Your camp schedule is quite full, you will not have a lot of down time to use electronic devices.
  • You MAY have a cell phone and use recording apps for rehearsal purposes (Cell phone sectionals!!) , but you MAY NOT use your cell phone during the camp day to text or make casual phone calls.  Of course, students may use their phones in cases of emergencies. 

You will be sharing a small room with another person and constantly moving between buildings and rooms. It’s easy to leave something behind, for something to go missing, or for you to go to your next class without it.

FOOD

You are permitted to bring snack items with you for your room, but we ask you to follow these guidelines:

  • Your roommate may have allergies to which you are unaware. Please bring only food items that are individually sealed & packaged, and consider bringing nut-free items.
  • There are no refrigerators. Anything you bring will need to be kept at room temperature.
  • Consider refillable water bottles rather then a case of water

MEDICATIONS

When packing up medication please:

  • Make sure they are in their original container. Prescription medications should have a label stating the name of the physician, child’s name, name of the medication and the medication directions.
  • Provide exact dosing information on a sheet to be signed by a parent (required) or the physician (preferred).
  • Provide updates and/or changes to medication usage and/or dosage.
  • Provide ample medication at the start of camp.
  • Ensure that the medications have actually been given to the counselor on the first day of camp.

We suggest that parents pack medications in a large ziplock bag marked with the campers name on the outside and place a copy of the sheet of dosing instructions inside the bag. Don’t forget to pick up your left-over medications on check-out day!
