Becoming a Summer Camper

PAC Packing List

Average summer weather at camp is warm and sunny during the day with cool evenings. Warmer clothes for the night are important, as are clothes for rain. The keys to remember are to keep warm and dry, dress for physical activity, and remember that camp is a rural environment with dirt trails and the significant possibility of mud. Plan to live as simply as possible and make sure all clothing is clearly labeled with your name.

The following packing list is only a recommendation and by no means a complete list. But remember, space in the teepees is limited, so we ask that you try to pack in a single bag that you can use as storage. Elaine recommends rolling your clothes to fit more. Remember, this is camping.

Laundry facilities are available but extremely limited.

About the show:

Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming’s children’s book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one family-friendly blockbuster that audiences will find “Truly Scrumptious.”

An eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts sets about restoring an old race car from a scrap heap with the help of his children, Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car has magical properties, including the ability to float and take flight. Trouble occurs when the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself. The family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and batty Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

Filled with amazing stage spectacle and unforgettable songs, including the Academy Award-nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family.
