Official Packing List from Florida

[I will have copies of this release at Good Shepherd so that parents can sign them on Friday night. Also, please note their restrictions on cell phones and electronics. These supercede what we discussed at our meeting on Sunday, so please do not bring them. -Pastor Andy]

You will have a roll away bed, so you will need to bring a sleeping bag or bedroll and a pillow. You may still want a mat for our nights in Georgia. Bring clothing and other items appropriate to our summer weather, and the work projects.


  • Bible - an open heart and desire to serve
  • Guitar/musical instruments - Very small harmonicas

    *Florida summers are very hot and humid. It is essential you wear light-colored, cool and loose fitting clothing and stay well hydrated. Only modest attire will be permitted for safety reasons. For your health and protection, you must drink plenty of water and apply liberal amounts of sunscreen (minimum SPF #30).
PLEASE DO NOT BRING: Jewelry, video games, radios/boom boxes, pagers, cell phones, fireworks, any form of drugs or alcohol. These items will be confiscated. Personal CD Players will be allowed during lights out time. LOMF will not be responsible for loss or theft of these items.


Medications will be the responsibility of each adult sponsor for the group. (In our case this will be Debbie Hanson) Please bring all medicines in original container with complete administration and storage directions clearly indicated. Further, enclose medicines in a Ziploc bag with your camper’s name clearly written in permanent marker on the bag.

If you have any questions about camp, registration, or any other concerns prior to or during camp please call Denise Baringer at 727.560.6241. Please bring all completed forms to camp with you. Health forms will be accepted without a Dr.’s signature.
