The below is a list of recommended items for your child’s stay as well as a list of what is not allowed at camp. Please review it carefully.

To ensure comfortable space in our cabins campers should arrive with only 1 trunk and 1 duffle bag (or equivalent).

In addition, note that medications are not allowed in cabins and must be delivered to the infirmary staff upon arrival. Be sure to pack accordingly.

Please note that camper laundry is done once a week by a staff member. All belongings must be labeled appropriately. For this reason, we have partnered with Mabel’s Labels, a company with all types of labels that are colorful, indestructible and fun! With a special ‘Camp Pack’ available and also a larger “Big Combo”, your camper can label absolutely everything!

Go to, select “AGBU Camp Nubar” from the “Select your Camp” dropdown menu, and then shop!

Please note that campers, staff and visitors may not bring any food into camp to ensure the health and safety.
