Preparing for Overnight Camp
Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer our Resident / overnight program for 2023. We look forward to being able to resume this program in 2024.
Resident Camp Check-In
Resident Camp Check-In is 3pm to 3:30pm on the Sunday of your session. We will make sure that all of your forms have been submitted, get your camper settled into his/her room and get their adventure started.
Resident Camp Check-Out
Check-out for Resident Camp is 9:15am to 9:45am on the Saturday of your session.
Please contact the camp if your arrival or departure is different from the above schedule.
Lost and Found
Lost and found items will be kept in a designated spot in the Camp Office throughout the summer. Please check with the Camp Directors if you believe an item of yours was left behind at camp. We are unable to store lost and found items once camp is over and we will donate any unclaimed items after the final day of camp.
Cell Phones and Electronics Policy
Campers may not bring electronic devices to camp. We believe camp is a great opportunity for children to be independent of their parents, in a safe and supportive environment, for a short period of time. After many discussions with camp parents and careful consideration, we are no longer allowing electronic devices at Mountain Camp Woodside. This includes Music Players (iPods, MP3s, etc.), Hand Held Games (DS, PSP, etc.), Cell Phones, Electronic Readers (Kindles, iPads, etc.), Laptops, Radios as well as all Smart Watches. As electronic devices have grown increasingly more complex (with features like video, internet access, etc.), we believe they disrupt the camp environment and have the potential to negatively impact the camper’s experience. Cameras are allowed. We recommend a disposable camera
Not Allowed At Camp
We do not allow pets, weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco or other banned substances at camp.
If your camper needs medication, it must be turned in and logged with the Camp Nurses. All medicine must be in the original containers. Due to licensing, Camp Nurses are not allowed to dispense any medications not in their original containers.
If you will be sending either OTC or prescription medication with your camper that he/she will take only on an as needed or occasional basis, please complete the As Needed Medication – Check-In Form prior to the camper check-on to make things go quicker.
If your camper will be taking routine prescription medication while at camp, please complete our Routine Medication – Check-In Form prior to camper check-in to speed up the process.
Resident Camp Packing List
Recommended for one (1) week; adapt accordingly for the longer session. Laundry service is available for all resident campers. Please label everything so you can easily identify your camper’s belongings if they are left behind:
- 7 pairs of underwear
- 1 set of pajamas
- 3 pairs of shorts
- 6 T-shirts
- 2 pairs jeans/ sweatpants
- 1 jacket
- Several masks / face coverings enough to last for two weeks

Mountain Camp Woodside has a camp store available for all campers. The campers go to the store once during the week and it carries an abundance of awesome Mountain Camp Woodside gear (t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, pants and all sorts of other camp souvenirs). We feel that it is an extra activity where they learn independence and decision making skills.
Campers can add money to their camp online or set up a debit account with the store on the first day of camp (checks or cash only).
Recommended amount for a 1-week session:
Apparel (sweatshirts, t-shirts, pants, stuffed animals, etc.) – $60-$80
