Preparing for camp?

Posted on Apr 29, 2015

As summer is around the corner and you are preparing your camper(s) for camp or vacations or trips, here is a suggested packing list for a typical 2-week camp session. The best advice we can give it to mark all items with your camper’s name with either a name tag or permanent marker. Each camper is responsible for their belongings. Please show them how to pack and fold their clothes, how to separate dirty laundry in a bag from clean laundry and why not make it a fun family activity on the next rainy day!
