Activity Appropriate Shoes

Camp Coleman has a very hilly terrain and the paths can be rocky. This is one important reason to come to camp with theappropriate shoes. The other important thing to keep in mind in preparing for camp is activity appropriate shoes.

Campers are expected to wear Sneakers for Sports, Etgar (Challenge activities, like Ropes Course, Climbing Tower, Mountain Biking, Zip Line, etc.) or anything physically challenging.

**Please Note**

Campers may have to plan ahead for their activities for the 3 morning periodsor for the 3 afternoon periods. For example, if your camper has Israeli Scouting first period, Arts & Crafts second period and Sports third period s/he will need to wear sneakers all morning as there is no time between activity periods to go back to the bunk to change shoes. Keep in mind it is more important to wear sneakers to Sports than it is to wear aqua-socks to Swimming, so if campers haveSports and Swimming in the morning (periods 1, 2 or 3); then sneakers should be worn to all of the morning activity periods.

To Bring or Not To Bring

Camp Coleman cannot take responsibility for personal items your camper may choose to bring to camp. We strongly discourage you from allowing your camper to bring such items. If you must send these items, we strongly encourage you to purchase the A. M. Skier Camp Insurance. We are a non-profit campand cannot afford to help you replace any lost or misplaced items.

• We dress informally at camp. Please do not send new and expensive clothing. We ask that all clothing be appropriate and respectful. Please remember proper shoes are essential for life at camp.
• For Friday nights, the attire is WHITE ONLY - that is; white shorts, shirts, dresses, etc. If you cannot find white shorts wewill allow khaki shorts or pants. This helps us to create a beautiful Shabbat atmosphere.
• Do not send valuable jewelry.
• Do not send spending money to camp with your camper - it is not needed and given to them when on trips.
• Please label everything your child brings to camp with their entire name (not initials). See name tape and stamp options at .
