Posted on

Bring the gear your camper needs to keep organized.



Hey, Camp Parents!

Staying organized at summer camp is no easy feat. It’s asking a lot of your camper, after all, to live out of a camp trunk for a week or longer without it getting a bit chaotic inside. You don’t want your camper wasting precious time at camp as they search for buried items, though. You want them enjoying their camp stay to the fullest!

What can you do during the packing process to help them maintain organization during their time away? Here are some great tips to help your camper remain orderly:





It will be a lot easier for your camper to find things if they know what their gear looks like! Check out this parent’s tip about going over all the gear with your camper before or while you pack:

“Show your child their things BEFORE you pack it in their trunk! Make sure they know what their laundry bag, sports equipment, and non-personalized items look like so they can recognize it in the bunk.”

- Rebecca W. 

Keeping toiletries together makes things tidy and efficient.
