What to Pack

Wondering what to bring for a week (or more!) at SYP? It's pretty easy; bring what you need for the week, but don't overpack.

The following is a general list of what you can expect to bring. In addition, some classes require additional or special equipment. Check below the general list for program-specific suggestions. A packing list will also be sent out with your welcome packet.

General Packing Guidelines

*Prescription Medications

All students taking prescription medications, are required to bring and turn in medication in pre-dosed AM/PM dispensers.  Dosing information for prescription medications should be documented in CampDoc. This requirement does not include over-the-counter medicine.

SYP does provide many over-the-counter medications as needed, please do not send these with your child. In your CampDoc profile, you will have the opportunity to authorize SYP staff to provide specific over-the-counter medications or not. In addition, we are happy to create an individual medication plan with you upon request. You can reach us at syp@mtu.edu 

Program-Specific Packing Lists

Some classes need equipment or other special "stuff" to come to camp with you. Pack these things in addition to your regular items.
