What to Pack for Summer Camp

Going to summer camp can be a life-changing experience for kids. They might leave as children but come back as young adults, with a sense of who they are and how they want to be seen by the world. When you are packing for them (or better still, with them helping), it is really important to not just make sure that they are warm and dry, but that they also feel that they have the things that reflect them.

The Camp should provide some guidance for what they will need, and policies on things like mobile usage and money. Also, check with your camp to find out what laundry services are available - this might influence how much to pack. For the rest, check out our summer camp packing list below, or download the list:
