Camper Experience

At the Cove, we want everyone to feel prepared for the best week of their lives. So we took the liberty of setting up your camper experience. Here are some questions that we hear the most from campers. If you are a grown-up, check out our Parent Zone for more answers to your questions.

What should I Pack for Camp?

Great question! Soon you'll be arriving at Canoe Cove Christian Camp all bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for a week jammed packed with friends, food and awesome time learning about God. So as you prepare for this adventure and start to pack your gear here is a list of things to bring with you.

 

Suggested Summer Packing List​

  • A sleeping bag, pillow, and blanket

  • A toothbrush, tooth paste, hair brush, and other toiletries

  • A shower towel and a beach towel

  • Clothes (Just remember all shorts must be at least fingertip length)

Can I be in the same cabin as my friends?

At the Cove, we want you to have a great time with friends - new and old! So let us know on your registration form the name of one friend who you'd like to have in the same cabin and we will do every things we can to make that happen. Due to COVID restrictions, if you are in a bubble with someone you can indicate so on your form. This may increase the number of campers we can have

Who are the staff?

At the Cove, we have the best staff and volunteers to hang out with you all week. They are fun, and welcoming, and funny, and they love Jesus. More info coming soon
