Robin Hood Camp recommends a minimum of 8 tops (t-shirts or polo), 5 pairs of shorts, 2 sweatshirts (hooded or crew), 2 pairs of sweatpants, 2 laundry bags, and 1 RH jacket. Laundry is done once a week, so campers need enough uniforms for seven days.
We suggest packing in a large, soft-sided duffle bag.
