Parents will be able to view the lunch menu online every day. 

What to wear:
  • Bathing suit (Campers should arrive in their bathing suit with t-shirt/shorts over it. This is to limit the amount of time spent changing before water activities. They will have at least one water activity per day.)
  • T-shirt and shorts
  • Sneakers and socks
  • Hat or visor
  • A great attitude (smile!)
What to bring:
Campers are provided with a Summer at RE t-shirt, water bottle, and drawstring bag on the first day of camp. If campers go on fieldtrips, they will be required to wear their camper t-shirt.

  • Backpack or Summer at RE drawstring bag
  • Change of clothes and extra underwear
  • Second bathing suit for double water days
  • Towel
  • Ziploc bag for wet bathing suit

We ask that parents clearly label all clothes, towels, and water bottles. Ransom Everglades is not responsible for any lost or misplaced items. A lost and found will be held in the Summer Camp office, and it will close on the last day of camp.
