Parents: We will be meeting at SunHouse on Sunday June 26 at 7:30am.
We will be stopping at In-N-Out Burger on the way up for a late lunch so be sure to give some extra money. You are also welcome to pack some snacks and waters for the bus trip or camp as well.
We will be returning to SunHouse on Friday June 30th between 1 - 2pm. Please call the “SunHouse Return Hotline” before coming to pick up your student for updated return times. SunHouse Hotline #: 858-729-5543
Students are allowed to bring their phones, tablets, and other electronics on the bus, but once at camp we will be holding all devices securely for them. We have had too many students lose, damage, or use electronics in a negative way. If you need to contact your son/daughter, please talk with a SunHouse staff member before we leave so we can coordinate times for students to use their phones to contact you.
We do encourage that students simply leave all electronics at home and would appreciate any help you can give to us in this matter.
To Contact your student at camp, you can call: 909-867-7037. Our group name will be "La Jolla Presbyterian Church" and the camp can take a message for you student.
Questions? Call Alyssa at SunHouse. 858-729-5502
Medications must be in their original pharmacy container along with written instructions. All in a Ziploc plastic bag with the camper’s name printed on it. (PLEASE NOTE: If meds are not in the original container we cannot and will not administer them.)
Please help us by following the medication process of Forest Home.
Remember that at SunHouse Summer Camp, we can get all kinds of different weather. In the past there has been drizzle, cool evenings and of course, sun. Be sure to check the weather here before you start the final packing.
Luggage should be clearly labeled inside and out. It’s a good idea to place the your name, address, phone number, and "SunHouse" inside luggage as well as outside.
Tip: Label everything you want back with a permanent marker
ProTip: Only pack what you can carry! Where the bus drops us off and where the cabins are can sometimes be a long walk. Make it easy on yourself!.
Sleeping bag and pillow. Tip: you can usually roll the pillow in the sleeping bag. It is a good idea to make sure the sleeping bag is in a bag (even a plastic trash bag works) to carry it and keep it clean.
Bible (and pens) – be sure your name is in it
Bath towel and wash cloth
Swim suit. Girls must either wear a one piece, tankini, or wear a rash guard/shirt over bikini top. ProTip: Wear a rash guard for both sun protection and modesty.
Flashlight: Please be sure to label the flashlight and send extra batteries.
General toiletries: soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, towel, washcloth, etc.
Chap stick or other lip protection with sunscreen (non-flavored) ProTip: flavored chapstick attracts bugs, so go with no flavor.
Clothing for three - four days. Let's be honest, it makes it easier on you to pack and carry less, and you end up wearing the same stuff a couple times anyways.
Clean socks (bring extras) & underwear.
A warm hat or beanie, in case it gets cold at night.
At least two pairs of long pants and sweatshirt; evenings can be very cold (bring layers)
At least two pairs of shoes (in case one pair gets wet)
WHAT NOT TO BRING!!!
Weapons, such as knives or any other item or weapon designed to hurt someone
Air Soft Guns
Cell phones, iPods, iPads, Computers, or other electronic devices. ProTip: We do allow phones on the bus ride up and back, but at camp phones are put in a lock box. SunHouse brings cameras so you can capture all your favorite moments. But it is easier to just not bring a phone.
Any electronic games and other electronic video games.
Please, please avoid preventable heartache; do not send anything that is valuable or irreplaceable.
