Summer camp is a great way for children to have fun and learn new things while making memories and friendships that can last a lifetime. However, it can be a lot of work for parents to pack their children for summer camp. Here are five packing tips for summer camp that will make the packing process easier for parents.
5 Summer Camp Packing Tips
Plan Ahead and Make a List
If you want to make packing your child for summer camp easy, plan ahead. Check out the camp’s website, the itinerary of activities, and the suggested packing lists they provide. Next, make a list of what you need for each day and take inventory of what you have and what you may need to purchase before heading to camp. Knowing what activities your child will be participating in will help you know if they will need extra outfits on certain days, or swimming supplies and themed accessories.
Pack outfits in individual bags or packing cubes
Getting ready in the morning and for bed can be a bit chaotic in a cabin full of kids, so preselecting outfits and putting them in a packing cube with everything they will need from socks to scrunchies for the day will help make getting ready quicker and help prevent everything in your child’s duffle bag from being pulled out all over the cabin.
Create a shower caddy and a camp backpack
Like with the packing cubes, keeping items that are needed at the same time together is key. A shower caddy that has all their toiletries in it will keep everything together and prevent forgetting things in the bathroom. Likewise creating a small backpack for your child to bring out to activities each morning will help keep everything they need close by like bug spray, sunblock, and a refillable water bottle.
Label Everything with Name Bubbles Camp Labels
I have talked before about how much I love Name Bubbles Labels, and their Camp Labels set is a must for campers this summer. The Camp Labels Packs come with over 70 personalized labels that are waterproof, sunscreen and bug spray proof, laundry safe and comes with both iron and stick-on labels. This is the perfect way to make sure everything that you send to camp with your kiddos comes back home with them. From water bottles to their favorite hoodie, putting a label on it before you pack it is a must. Plus with Name Bubbles you get a wide variety of styles and designs to choose from, so you can pick your kid’s favorite colors or themes. Check them all out here!
Pack some fun extras as a surprise
I love packing the kids a new journal, a fidget, and some little notes among their things reminding them how amazing they are and that I love them. My kids always have a blast at summer camp but finding something special from mom in their bags helps them settle in for the week.
