Its finally March, which means the snow is hopefully starting to melt away as summer is rapidly approaching.
We are SURE that you are starting to think about what to pack. It definitely helps makes summer come faster.
You can find our recommended packing list here, but we also wanted to send some extra tips of what you should your kids to camp with, and some packing tips!
1. Ask your kids to help you pack. This way they know what they’re bringing. Our campers never know when they’re going to have to put their clothes together to make some sort of costume. If they know whats coming, they wont spend as much time digging thru their cubbies. We know… they might not want to help fold the clothes. But they’re going to practice a lot during the summer, so packing is a great time to start. Put on a great playlist… it helps!
2. Pick 1 style of towels – You will be able to see your towel at the lake all the way from the Fun house.
3. Jacks, cards, pick up sticks – the best activities to play in the bunk with friends. Perfect for rainy days and flashlight time!
4. 0-2 tutus for Blue & Gold/Penn Cornell/4th of July/Rainy Day Activities/Spirit Day/A Random Thursday. But don’t forget to pack more shorts than tutus so they can play activities. The spirit gear is better for free time!
5. A bucket hat! It protects your whole face and ears from the sun, and its making a style comeback. Bucket hats were most recently seen on Steph Curry, LeBron James, and Bob Wortman.
6. If you send spirit gear for color war like: mardi gras beads, bunny ears, feathers, bowties, send them in a small container or bag to keep it all together and safe from getting lost under their beds.
7. Sneakers for potentially muddy walks, sneakers for activities, and your best dancing sneakers for DJ Jeff night.
8. Your funniest t-shirt – you never know when you’ll need it.
9. Feel free to coordinate with other kids in the bunk – nothing looks better in a picture than a rainbow of crocs on everyones feet.
10. Label everything!!!
