Packing Tips for Away Camps

(BUILT IN) (Icons/Graphics) TravelSuitcase.jpgMemory Makers: Stationery: Pack stamped, pre-addressed envelopes and paper & pens so kids can send letters to family and friends. Journal/Diary: Send a journal so your child can keep track of all their experiences. Camera: Pack a disposable camera so your child can have fun photographing their experiences.

 

Label everything: You do not want your kids losing everything at camp. Make sure their name is on everything... clothes, sports equipment, toiletries, etc.

 

Electronics: Find out camp policies on iPods, computers and Gameboys. These items can break easily or be stolen. Charging these things may be challenging as well if kids are in a tent. Encourage them to focus on enjoying nature and new experiences instead.
