What not to take to camp

One of my colleagues has a brochure and booking form for a children's holiday camp in the first week of the April school holidays, and I had a look at it because I never went on one. The list of things to take is pretty sensible, except for the "large plastic dirty washing bag". I suppose they're putting grubby clothes in it, but surely a clean one would help whoever has to wash the contents. ;-)

Even better is the list under "Please do not bring":

  • Electronic equipment (i.e. radios, walkmans, gameboys, cellphones) - wouldn't e.g. be better? Some kid's going to take an iPod because it's not on the list.
  • knives
  • matches
  • chewing gum
  • toenail-flavoured chocolate pudding
  • soap chewing gum
OK, most of those are very sensible, but the last two? I just know there's a story behind those and it's not a happy one.
