How to Prepare for Camp: Tips and Advice

Preparing for Camp Tholo requires careful planning and attention to detail. Here are some essential tips and advice to ensure a smooth and enjoyable camp experience:

  1. Research the Venue:

    • Printed Directions: Obtain a copy of the printed directions from our admin staff. Do not rely solely on Google Maps or GPS to reach the camp.
  2. Health and Safety:

    • Insurance: Arrange supplementary health insurance and travel insurance. Carry proof of coverage and leave a copy with someone at home.
    • Vaccinations: Ensure you have any required vaccinations before your trip.
    • Medications: Keep medications in their original containers and carry a doctor’s prescription for any controlled drugs. If you use syringes, carry a medical certificate and leave copies at home.
  3. Communication:

    • Remote Locations: Be aware that Camp Tholo operates in remote areas where cell phone signals cannot be guaranteed.
  4. Travel Documents:

    • Passports and Visas: If crossing borders, ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your trip. Photocopy the identification page and keep it separate from your passport, and leave another copy with someone at home. Ensure you have any necessary visas.
    • Receipts: Keep original receipts for purchases, hotel bills, rental car agreements, and medical services.
  5. Consent and Medical Information:

    • Consent Forms: Ensure all campers have signed consent forms.
    • Medical Information: Collect and carry medical information and emergency contact details for all campers.

By following these tips, you can ensure you are well-prepared for your time at Camp Tholo, making your experience safe and enjoyable.
