Are you attending gymnastics camp with IGC this summer? One of the most stressful things about getting ready for camp can be packing. Here are a few tips and recommendations for what to pack when you’re coming to our gymnastics camp.

Gymnastics Camp Packing Tips

Summer casual clothing is appropriate for camp.  The clothes brought to camp are likely to get extra dirty and may get damaged or lost. Avoid bringing lots of brand-new, expensive clothes to camp. Please label all items brought to camp. This is the best way to ensure that the items brought to camp will come home from camp. Use a permanent laundry marker to label items but use more than just initials.  All forgotten clothing and unclaimed items are donated to charity at the end of each following camp week. If you believe that your camper may have an item in ‘lost and found,’ you must contact the camp office in the week after your camper returns home.

Camp is a great place for campers to learn responsibility, this includes carrying their own luggage. We recommend using duffel
bags on wheels, so campers can easily maneuver their luggage up and down the hilly terrain. Storage space is limited, and luggage cannot be higher than 14 inches, so it will fit under the bed.
