Happy Camper

This time of year can be really busy: as soon as school winds down…summer camp starts up. In the next few weeks I’ll be getting my daughter ready to go to camp for the first time.

Here are some reminders to help get your camper ready to go:

  • Plan a time to shop for what you need to purchase.
  • Label everything your child will bring or wear to camp. There are several online companies where you can purchase pre-printed labels with your child’s name. 
  • Plan for the first day of camp. Talk with your child about what to expect, especially if this is the first time they are going. Have them pick out their clothes for the first day and have the backpack or bag packed the night before.

With a little bit of planning and organization, your child will be a happy camper!
