Packing, Tagging, & Marking, Luggage and Shipping

Packing List download pdf

Don’t want to lose your shirt at camp? Hey, if you follow these helpful tips you’ll be right as rain.

Packing

Please use the Suggested Packing List as a guide. This is merely a checklist; not every item is necessary. You should use your best estimate of quantities needed. Please do not bring excessive clothing since storage space is limited. In addition, please do not use any combination or other locks on luggage. Keys and combinations get lost in transit.

Lands End Logowear

While we don’t require a uniform at Camp W*K, we have partnered with Lands End to offer you Camp W*K logo clothing if you’d like. Click on the image below and a new page will open. Then click ‘Show Packing List’ in the top middle of the page. As you select items there will be an option to apply the Camp W*K logo at the bottom of each page.

Tagging & Marking

All possessions must be name tagged or marked with indelible ink. This is the best way misplaced items can be identified and returned. There are two products that we recommend in making this task more manageable:

  • Stickerkid
    Brightly colored sticky, iron-on and shoe labels that can be personalized. Camp W*K families can receive a 20% discount.
  • Name Dropper
    A self-inking laundry marking stamp that marks clothes with permanent ink.

Luggage

Many families pack for Camp using one large duffel bag. Families who drive to Camp should bring their luggage with them. Campers taking a bus to Camp can bring one bag per camper. All other luggage should be sent to Camp prepaid, prior to your camper’s arrival.

Shipping

Please ship your bags to Camp via UPS or FedEx, and arrange for them to arrive by Monday, June 24, 2019, allowing for sufficient transit time.

The address to use is:

Camper’s Name
Camp Wingate*Kirkland
79 White Rock Road
Yarmouth Port, MA 02675

Luggage will be distributed to the proper bunk by staff members prior to the campers’ arrival at Camp. In the younger bunks, counselors will help the campers unpack and make their beds as soon as they arrive. Parents are welcome to assist their child with unpacking and settling in on the first day that they arrive at Camp.
