  • Each day campers go to the Trading Post to purchase a snack and drink. On the last full day of Camp, campers are then able to purchase souvenirs to take home with them. Camp Lone Star’s Trading Post has a wide variety of drinks, snacks, shirts, hats, water bottles, stuffed animals, sunglasses, and much more! All our items range from $1 – $45. The Trading Post store opens after the Closing Program for families to purchase any snacks or other souvenirs to take home.

In an effort to create the best camp environment for everyone, we ask that parents monitor what is packed for camp attire. Campers may not wear short shorts, tight or extra low-rise pants, tight or revealing t-shirts, cropped shirts, or bikini style swimming suits. A camper will be asked to change if they are not in compliance.

If any of the following items are found, they will be confiscated and can be picked up by parents at the end of the session:

  • Cell phones, smart watches, tablets, or other electronic devices.
  • Weapons, lighters, illegal drugs, alcohol, tobacco/vaping/juul products or fireworks
  • Gum, candy, food or other edible items.
