Organize Your Child For Summer Camp

Families know that it is summer camp time. Children look forward to this time and even parents look forward to it as a time when their children will develop new skills and make some new friends and just have some fun.
Whether your child goes away to camp or to a local camp, the "camp experience" involves great organization on the part of the camper and the family. It is so important that you get organized for your child ahead of time. Try our camp organization tips so your child will have a great summer.

When you register your child for camp - ask for the materials list. Many camps will mail it out as camp date gets closer, but most will provide it at your request earlier - which means you can get your shopping done earlier.

Labels in clothing are very important, especially for children attending a sleep-away camp. Add labels early - and remember if your child has a popular name and surname like Susan Smith to add their middle name too to avoid confusion.
Sending treats to sleep-away camp and day camp is a popular occurrence. Label snacks so campers know whose snacks are whose. Remember that many children today have peanut allergies - so don't select snacks with peanuts in them.

Your child for sleep-away camp will have a large trunk to put all of their items in. Remember to label the actual trunk, both inside and outside so everyone knows whose trunk it is.
Many children are tempted to bring valuable items like a charm bracelet, favorite teddy bear or electronic devices to camp. This is often unwise as these items can become lost or sometimes "borrowed" by overeager campers. Sometimes these items are also hard to label - like a teddy bear or a piece of jewelry.

Give your child pre-stamped stationary or postcards to write friends and family home while at sleep-away camp. Most sleep-away campers do have access to email. But many campers look forward to daily "mail call" and the best way to get mail is to send some of your own.
