Bonus Pro-Tips to help you prepare:

  • Pack road-trip games for your travel days
  • Bring fans (personal or box) and ear plugs for sleeping rooms
  • Some groups make their own t-shirts to wear on the first/arrival day. It’s a fun way to represent your parish. You can even add our logo (file found on our Promote page) if you would like. Check out our albums on Facebook for ideas on what other groups have done in the past.
  • CHWC will provide a free t-shirt to every camper distributed during the week. Many groups wear these on the last day of camp (Friday) for the free day.
  • Bring labeled coolers and storage containers for snacks, and ALSO bring one cooler per adult that will need to go with them to a worksite each day for work team lunches (large cooler bags work great for this!).
