Mr. Turner likes to tell parents, “Dress them like they’re playing baseball and sliding into first base”… in other words, imagine what it’s going to take to protect your child’s skin on their arms, legs and feet. Your child does not need to go out and buy a brand new motocross riding outfit to be adequately protected! And remember, we supply all the safety gear: gloves, helmet, goggles, chest protector.
Here’s how to come dressed to camp:
- Long sleeve t-shirt (all the way to wrists) or riding jersey if owned
- Long pants, of tougher material like jeans or corduroys or riding pants if owned
- Tennis shoes that tie & cover skin or boots – (NO slip-on shoes, NO mesh shoes)
- Socks, to cover skin that shows under pants when seated – (NO footie-socks)
Here’s what else your child will need to bring in some sort of small duffel bag or backpack which will be hung in his/her assigned locker:
- WATER BOTTLE! – regular, full size (25 oz for example), refillable with pull-out/flip out drinking spout. Very important! Please, no Ozarka/Dasani-type water bottles meant for single use and no jugs – too big/not easy for camper to manage with one hand.
- Swim Suit & Towel for Pool Time
- Flip Flops, Slides or Sandals for Pool Time and home
- Change of clothes for after Pool Time: shorts & short-sleeved
t-shirts work best
- Sack Lunch unless Meal Plan is purchased
- An extra pair of pants and long-sleeved shirt that can be kept at camp for the week, in case needed
This information will also be given in a letter you receive prior to the beginning of your child’s camp week.
