Got Gear? Packing For Summer Camp 2014
Packing for summer camp is different than a weekend Troop trip, and its way different than what’s needed for a week with Grandma and Grandpa. Assuming that meals — and the supplies needed to prep them — are supplied, the tried-and-true Summer Camp packing list, built for a one-week Boys Scout encampment, outlines all that your little man might need.
– This year, include extra bug spray, 40% DEET. The ticks are bad. while you’re at it, pick up a Tick Tool.
– Pack 1-2 extra days worth of clothes. Kids fall into lakes. Kids fall into mud. Kids clothes get lost and forgotten.
– Pack 3-4 pairs of shoes and socks. Blisters will ruin his week.
– Put clothes in gallon zipper bags, one set of clothes per day. Helps him find what to wear fast — and get it to the shower house safely — and keeps it clean and dry in an otherwise unclean setting.
