This includes emergency medication (inhalers, epi-pens, etc.), routine prescription medication and over-the-counter medication and vitamins (Tylenol, Benadryl, etc.). Please visit the Camp Forms section of the website to download the form.

Snacks, Meals & Water

Please provide a mid-morning snack, an afternoon snack and a packed lunch for your camper. Join us in our efforts to live in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Please consider packing a low-waste snack and lunch with reusable containers and napkins and avoid extraneous packaging and non-recyclable materials. Please consider removing the plastic cover on juice-box straws, as they tend to litter the Arboretum after lunch time.

Tyler is not a peanut-free facility, but we encourage you to consider packing peanut-free foods, as there are many campers with allergies. Please contact us if you have allergy concerns.

Dinner and breakfast are provided for Naturalists campers during overnights.

Campers MUST have a water bottle. Often campers will be out and about away from the building, and away from drinkable water sources. They must have the ability to stay hydrated, even on their adventures. Please ensure that your camper has a reusable water bottle every day.

Clothing & Footwear

Campers should come dressed ready for outdoor exploration and in play clothes that may get dirty. Campers must wear sturdy shoes, such as sneakers, or sandals that strap to the feet. Flip flops are not acceptable camp shoes.

Please pack a bathing suit, towel and water shoes every day, as there is always the possibility of a stream adventure or water games, especially on those extra hot days! Water shoes must be a style of shoe that will stay on while in the water. Closed water shoes, sandals that strap to feet or old sneakers work best. Flip flops are not acceptable.

For young campers, an extra set of clothes is recommended.

Please label all items with your child’s name (including shoes, towels, lunch bags and water bottles). Many items end up in the lost and found and are never claimed. If they are labeled, we make every effort to return them to the camper. All unclaimed lost and found items are donated at the end of August.
