What to bring to camp


Dekoven supplies linens including towels, pillows with covers, sheets, blankets and duvets.

  • Clothes for hot days and cool nights.
  • toiletries including towels, soap, shampoo, bug spray, sun screen, hair dryer
  • Large top linens – if you have a double-able room and will be pushing two beds together you’ll probably need a few extra bedding items.  Ask Heather if you are interested in this option so she can choose a big enough room.
  • Most rooms have some kind of curtain or shutters.  However some cover only half the window or won’t work if you like your windows open.  If you like complete darkness it might be necessary to bring a piece of cloth to use on part of the windows.  They do have towels and blankets available in a pinch.    
  • Some campers find the beds firm. You may want to bring a pad to put on your bed, just in case.

The following are some suggested items you could bring, which might enhance your week.

  • swim suit
  • electric fan  (not only to cool your room, but to  provide “white noise” for sleeping)
