Campers are assigned laundry numbers before the start of camp. His/Her laundry number must be marked in all of his clothes and other items brought to Camp. A permanent marker or iron-on/stick on label must be used. It should be clearly visible so we can do our best to return any lost items. Please do not bring good clothes or other expensive items. It’s impossible for our staff to keep track of these items. Camp Stanislaus is not responsible for lost items. However, there is a “Lost and Found” at Camp, and it is a sight to see on closing days.
