You can order t-shirts and other Camp gear by visiting the online store:

We will not ship your items directly to you. Instead, your camper will pick up her items on Opening Day.

Opening Day T-Shirt

Every camper will recieve an Opening Day t-shirt in the mail before Camp (usually in late May.) These t-shirts are a gift, and you will not need to order one! Please do make sure that your camper’s t-shirt size (as submitted on her application) is up-to-date. We’d hate to send her a t-shirt that is too small for her to wear to Camp!

Tribe Shirts

Each camper is required to have two tribe t-shirts. Brand new campers will be issued two tribe shirts (free of charge) when they are placed in a tribe. You do not need to order these items.

If your new camper would also like a tribe tank top, you will need to order one.

Returning campers who need to upsize their tribe shirts can ask a fellow tribe member for hand-me-down shirts or order new ones through the online store.

A Few Tips
  • When placing your order, please type Mother’s First Name (Camper’s First Name) in the “First Name” section of the billing address. This will really help us get the right order to your camper! [e.g. First Name:Marsha (Sarah), Last Name: Hurt]
  • If you have more than one daughter camping at DeSoto, please place separate orders for each girl’s camp wear, or email to specify which items are meant for each of your girls.
  • First Term orders need to be placed no later than June 1st. Second Term orders should be made before July 1st. Please know that some items may sell out, so get your order in soon!
  • If you have any questions about camp wear, please email

What if I’m not a Camper? Can I still shop in the online store?

We will open the online store to alumni and friends during the fall and winter leading up to Christmas! During the spring and summer, we want to reserve the t-shirt inventory for campers.

Can I add money to my camper’s store account?

No, and there is really no need to. As far as t-shirts and other Camp Wear, campers can only buy what is ordered for them ahead of time.

Also, the online t-shirt store is different from the daily canteen at camp that we call “Store.” Snacks at Store (after rest hour everyday) are included in tuition and campers do not need any money in an account to purchase those items. If a camper loses something, like a toothbrush, and needs to buy a replacement at Store, the cost of that item is covered. If a camper spends over $50 in charges, the overage amount will be billed to the camper’s account, but accruing an overage charge is highly unlikely.
