summer camp must haves

With summer drawing near I’ve been thinking about summer activities and away camps. Honestly I’m not ready for away camp… I’m having a hard time with my oldest going to full day school next year… I know, I know. I don’t have to tell you moms how hard it is to let go.

Anyway, it still got me to thinking about all the fabulous things I would get them “IF” I were sending them away this year, and here are a few things that made my short list:

  • Pottery Barn Kids toiletry bags – how cool is this?! Let’s face it, the cabins don’t often have bathrooms/showers in them. You have to walk a few hundred yards and this keeps your shampoo, toothbrush, towel, etc. handy!  Plus, you can have it personalized so there is no question who it belongs to.
  • Mabel’s Labels’ Camp Edition – I’m all for labeling everything, even toothbrushes! {wink}
  • Personalization Mall “road trip” lap desk - this would be perfect for my kiddos to write letters home on. I know I will personally want a letter every single day… not that I’ll get it, but at least this little lap desk makes one less excuse they can give me.
  • Pottery Barn hooded beach towels – my oldest has a ton of curly hair so the hood would be super helpful.
  • Carson HU-530 Hawk kid bonoculars on Amazon – you can’t bird watch without them.
  • Tiny Prints summer camp personalized journal – and if my kiddos don’t write every day, maybe they’ll at least write down a little about their daily adventures so I can catch up when they get back home.

    Loving the toiletry bag too. We go camping as a family several times each summer and the showers are typically a hike. :) Thanks for the find!

    I have too been thinking about camp. I need help with care packages this year!!! It seems so hard to find unique goodies to send. If you know of any good sources please share. Thanks!
