Camp Clothing Guidelines
Everyday Attire: Camp colors are forest green and white
- Shirts may be forest green or white with or without Wyonegonic logos (no other logos; plain white, plain forest green are permitted).
- Shorts may be tan/khaki, forest green or white. No other shades of green are acceptable.
- Required Sunday grove attire is white shorts and white shirt.
- Swimsuits, night clothes and rain gear have no color requirement.
- Jeans, black tights or similar long pants are acceptable as weather dictates.
- If you are not using Amerasport, make sure clothing is forest green white and plain (without logos). Tops with spaghetti straps and bare midriffs are not acceptable (tank tops are ok).
Laundry is gone for 24-48 hours each week; a ten day supply of clothing is suggested, depending on a child’s habits. A mesh laundry bag is provided by camp.
Requirements for Swimmers: Campers are required to wear a white cap while swimming. White caps are part of our risk management plan for all swimmers in the water. Campers prefer Lycra caps and we request that you send at least two. You may order the white Lycra caps from Amerasport or purchase them in a sporting goods store.
Recommendations for Swimmers: We prefer athletic one-piece, quick-drying, nylon, swimsuits. If your daughter brings a two-piece suit, make sure it is practical for vigorous swim lessons and is of appropriate design. Campers should have at least two suits. UV protection swim shirts are available through Amerasport or grUVy wear. Swim goggles are recommended.
Sport Sandals must have a heel strap. Shoes or sandals that can get wet and be worn in a canoe are recommended. Water shoes, Tevas, Chacos or Keens are good; flip flops are not. Crocs may be worn only if the heel strap is in place.
Special Events: Colorful attire is permitted for a few special events each session. For first session and full season campers these include the 4th of July, and Wyo Valentines. For second session and full season campers these include, Wyo Holiday and Wyoween. Campers do not need an outfit for each holiday, but could pack something colorful that works for most. Red is popular.
Personal Labels for Clothing and Gear are mandatory and may be ordered through Amerasport or Oliver’s Labels (which are available through your CampInTouch Account). If you order clothing and labels through Amerasport prior to May 1 and if requested, they can attach labels free of charge. (Click on this service option under the Names Tapes & Stampers tab.)

- Amerasport services several camps. We recommend you do not order at the last minute.

- International orders will be shipped directly to camp.
Requirements for Horseback Riders:
Helmet: Campers are required to wear a riding helmet. The helmet must meet the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) #F1163-04a standard for safety. The helmet needs to bear the seal of the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI). Wyonegonic owns some helmets which can be shared by campers. A plastic disposable hair-net is provided and required for these community helmets. If your camper owns a helmet, she may bring it to camp. If your camper rides frequently, we suggest you consider purchasing her own helmet. Proper fit is essential for personal riding helmets to be used at camp. Please also make sure helmets have not been damaged in any way or involved in a previous impact. We recommend helmets that are adjustable for both proper fit and to accommodate growing children. The best way to purchase a helmet is through a local tack shop so you can try on the helmet to verify a proper fit. Please label your personal helmet before coming to camp. If a personal helmet does not bear the proper safety documentation or is deemed not to be a proper fit, your camper will be provided with a camp helmet and Wyonegonic will hold the personal helmet in storage until your camper’s departure.
Long Pants can be jodhpurs, riding tights, pants or jeans.
Riding Footwear must have heels and smooth soles that can easily come out of stirrups. Camp has a limited supply of riding boots at the stables that can be shared by campers. Like helmets, if your camper plans on riding frequently, we suggest you provide her own footwear.
