Camp Checklist

LINENS AND THINGS

LINENS AND THINGS

Make sure to bring cot or twin sized sheets, pillow, and a blanket or sleeping bag.

WATER BOTTLE

HAIL, HYDRATE!

Reusable bottle for water…or whatever …. ;P I present to you the “f*ing epic water bottle”. I put a margarita in this, left it out in the sun, and it still had ice in it the next day. It’s double walled, stainless steel, vacuum sealed, and has our logo etched into the top and side.

CLOTHES, COSTUME, & GARB

CLOTHES, COSTUME, & GARB

Clothes (cosplay encouraged all day, everyday) and a warm jacket for when the long night comes.

TOWEL

TOWEL

THE most massively useful thing a camper can have. Between the lake, the pool, and you know…. showering; you’re going to want at least one. We have some massively useful towels available for purchase online or at camp.

GOOD WALKING SHOES

GOOD WALKING SHOES

Make sure your shoes are made for walking, because that’s just what they’ll do. The paths are gravel, so flip flops are not good as a main shoe.

BYO Stuff

There’s a lot of things ENC will provide during your stay, like food, water, boffer swords, Nimbus 2000s, and so on. However, there are a few specialty items you may want to consider bringing…

  • Horseback riding shoes: If you intend on participating in horseback riding activities, you must have closed-toed shoes with a 1-inch heel. The latter requirement is to prevent shoes slipping through sturrups and riders having a bad time. (You can get them for $20-$25 at Payless for men and women.)
  • Boxes: For box battles.
  • Alcohol: For merriment.*Special note: no glass bottles outside on campgrounds. Liquor bottles can be kept in cabins and poured into plastic cups.*
  • Soda/Pop: For those who need a sugar boost.
  • Mermaid Tail: We will have monofins for the mermaid swimming lessons. But, the pretty tails we will not have.
  • Protective Cup: For your nethers during fencing, or anytime you think you might get hit in the groin.

*Special note: smoking (including vaping)  will only be allowed in the parking lot and behind the cafeteria*
