Can you identify with one of the following?

  1. You’re not a planner. You’ve procrastinated on finding camps for your kids and now you feel like there’s nothing good left.
  2. You thought you had everything nailed down, but there was a last-minute cancellation or a change in your schedule.
  3. You felt so busy during the school year with soccer, gymnastics, and clubs that you couldn’t fathom putting your kids in more activities during the summer. Now that you’re faced with ten long weeks of togetherness, you’re having second thoughts.

Packing

Most camps give you a packing list which covers the essentials. However, some appear rather sparse and you feel that surely some creature comforts must be missing.

For a more comprehensive list, I have combined the lists of 20 traditional summer camps in North Carolina. Download the ultimate sleepaway camp packing list.

A few tips:

  • After you have assembled your items, be sure to include your child in the packing process; they need to be able to find their stuff once they get to camp.
  • Everything should be considered disposable: do not pack anything you’d be upset to have destroyed or lost. A week in the woods will challenge even the most fastidious kid to keep things neat and clean.
  • Review your packing list and make sure you have everything, and that it fits. Trying to rush out and buy sweatpants at the last minute is not easy – Target doesn’t carry them in the summer.
  • And this apparently cannot be reiterated enough: LABEL EVERYTHING, even the toothbrush. Order your clothing labels now!
