The camp store is available to participants in all Wildwood programs, but camp store accounts are recommended for overnight campers and LITs. The camp store is open to all families on check-in and check-out days, with payment by camp store account or cash, check, or VISA/MasterCard/Discover. Campers may visit the camp store several times a week during Open Activity Time, paying by camp store account only.
For overnight campers or LITs, it’s helpful if you set up your camper’s store account prior to arriving at camp. You may deposit or add funds to a store account on check-in day if needed. However, we ask that campers not carry or receive cash, checks, or credit cards while at camp.
Please discuss how much money, if any, you will place in your camper’s store account and expectations for what your camper may purchase. We suggest an account balance of no more than $20-$30 per week. The following items are usually available in the camp store, although we cannot guarantee inventory:
- Souvenirs: carabiners, stuffed animals, blankets
- Outdoor Supplies: water bottles, identification guides, field bags, bandanas
- Writing Materials: pens, pencils, postcards, stamps, journals
- Personal Care Items: toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, soap, shampoo, deodorant
- Clothing: T-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, hats
The camp store does not sell food. (Drink mix to add to water bottles may sometimes be available.)
Let your camper know that he or she can ask Wildwood staff for urgently needed personal care or other items, even if they’re not on a shelf in the camp store—we can fill urgent needs quickly, if we know about them.
At the end of a camper’s session, parents/guardians may request a refund of a remaining store account balance. Please consider donating store account balances to the Wildwood scholarship fund.
