Planning to send your child, or come yourself, to GCBC this summer and wondering what you should bring? No worries. We have you covered. Here's a list of essentials and some packing tips.


  • Bible
  • Bedding (sleeping bag, pillow, blanket, etc)
  • Toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, etc)
  • Towel(s) & washcloth for showering
  • Towel(s) for swim time
  • Swim Gear (bathing suit & anything you need for daily swim time)
  • Bug spray
  • Clothes (enough for 6 days & pack a little extra to be safe)
  • Shoes (closed-toe shoes, sandals, etc.)
  • Flashlight
  • Canteen money ($10-20)


  • Bring a carrier or toiletry bag to carry back and forth to bathhouse
  • If you get hot at night, bring a bedside fan
  • If you send snacks, make sure they are in resealable bags / containers because these can attract unwanted critters and rodents
  • Bring an extra bag or hamper for dirty clothes
  • Send more than one towel for showering in case one gets wet or doesn't dry out enough
  • For young campers, send each day's clothing in individual gallon sized ZipLock bags with each day written on them
