All campers and counselors MUST wear closed toed shoes. Flip flops may be worn to the shower, but all other footwear must be closed toed (e.g. Tevas are NOT acceptable, but Crocs and Keens with toe covers ARE). River shoes are recommended for swimming and canoeing.
Navy blue shorts and a plain white t-shirt comprise the traditional camp dinner uniform. Each girl must wear this to dinner only. Throughout the day girls wear whatever clothing the weather dictates. B’s & W’s (blues and whites) are reserved for dinner. On Sundays, campers and counselors must wear white shorts with a white shirt from 10am to 5pm. The Sunday uniform does not apply to Mini Camp. Camp Alleghany shorts in navy and white are available at the camp store, as well as white Alleghany tee-shirts.
Chilly Mountain Weather
The mornings and evenings are chilly. A hoodie adds a comforting layer from the cool, damp temps. Jeans and sweatpants are appropriate for evening activities. Rain gear is a MUST! It rarely rains, but when it does it pours! Ponchos, and knee-high rain boots are recommended.
