Camp Brighton Woods

What to Wear

Not only are the required clothes protective, they also allow your girl to express her truly unique Brighton Woods style!
It's important to be appropriately dressed for a day at camp, and we like to have fun with it! Camp is full of woods, poison ivy, bugs, and ticks. Heads need to be covered to prevent ticks, so that means bandanas or hats. Most girls find bandanas to be much cooler than hats. If you aren't sure how to help your girl tie a bandana for her head, check out this link! Bandanas have the bonus of being used to dry hands (sustainable!), collect found wild objects, and more!
