Health Information and Medical Information - If possible, please complete
all health related forms online at your account by June
medication forms enable medication administration trained staff to give medication to
your daughter when the nurse has a day off or is away from camp. It needs to be signed by
you and the doctor, and any (even over-the-counter) medications that you are including on it
need to be brought with you to camp.  
If your daughter has an epi-pen or an inhaler, please be sure the "Self Administration box is
checked on the form so that your daughter can self-medicate her epi-pen or inhaler.
medication needs to be in the original container
, with your daughter’s name and
address on it, prescription or otherwise. (Prescriptions need to be made out in
your daughter’s name and if you have an inhaler, we need the box prescribing it to
your daughter.)

Packing: Here is an equipment list that can serve as your guide. Please don’t pack things
that she doesn't usually wear at home.  Call us if you have any questions. If you and your
daughter  pack together she will know what she has and where it is. Please mark
EVERYTHING with her name.  Here is a link to
Sterling Name Tape Co., if you would like
to buy labels. (Put in code 123 at check-out). The camp is not responsible for the loss or
damage of personal items so please do not bring expensive items.  Please note: We don’t
allow sleeveless shirts for riding. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and a watch, are required.  
• Laundry can be done at any time but we usually recommend once a week ($6 for an
8 lb. load).  The laundry gets put into the washer and dryer as is, so it helps to instruct your
daughter on un-balling socks, rolling down cuffs, etc. before putting laundry in the
laundry bag.  Also, lights and darks get washed together in cold water, so any brand new dark
clothes should probably be washed first at home.
• Please check inside your daughter’s helmet to make sure that it is ASTM/SEI approved and
is not over 5 years old.  
We also require riding boots and would prefer “paddock” boots because they are cooler
than tall boots and safer than riding sneakers.  You can get both items from a tack store or
a mail order company (e.g.
Horse.com  or Dover Saddlery)
• Campers are allowed to bring snacks to camp, and they also can be sent in care
packages but it is good to keep it to a small amount.  We do require that snacks are in
animal and bug proof containers so don’t send any more than will fit in your container. Please
do not send items with nuts or peanuts. They can also buy limited snacks at the canteen.
If you are interested in a care package company you might try  
The Wrinkled Egg!
Trunks are easier to live out of than duffel bags or suitcases. They may or may not fit
under the bed but campers usually use them as a night table.  Space is limited so we ask that
you don’t bring an enormous one.  If you are looking for a place to buy a trunk you can try
Everything Summercamp and put in code Trail609SJ to get a discount.
• We do not allow campers to have cell phones or other electronics that connect to the
Internet at camp because we feel that this is a time for them to learn to use other trusted
adults beside parents if they have a problem.  Please encourage your camper to talk to her
counselor, Julie, Alex,  or the nurse if she has a problem so that we can help.  We will
definitely call you for advice if she has a serious problem.

Spending Money - Campers are not allowed to keep money with them or in their trunk.
We suggest that you leave $30 dollars per week in spending money with us and we will start
a canteen account for your daughter. At the end of the session we will return the unspent
portion to you. This money will go towards laundry, T-shirts, sweatshirt, or boxers, etc, if
wanted, and candy, ice cream, or beverages, which is limited, and
extra riding programs.  

The cost for the extra programs are as follows:
Semi-private lessons* @ $40                          Private lessons* @ $55
Show 'n Learn Horse Show (7/
7, 7/28, & 8/11) @ $52 (includes 3 classes)

Video Eventing Clinic* @ $110 (includes the cost of the t

                                                                                                        *Scheduled as needed
This account will also be charged for fees paid, if any, if your daughter needs to be brought
to the doctor or dentist.
The doctor will then process the forms to your insurance company for you to be reimbursed.
Check-in! - Please arrive to check-in between 2:00 and 3:30 pm on Sunday.  If you need
to arrive earlier or later please let us know ahead of time. The charge for early arrival is $15
per hour.  Your daughter's bed will already be picked out for
her so there is no need to come
early to pick out her bed.
