Although your kid has been prepared for different vacation times with family or friends before, getting ready for summer camp is a bit different. The word ‘different’ might get you confused but you shouldn’t be. Once you decide to send your kid to an adventurous summer camp, make sure that you pack all these essentials by considering how long he is going to stay there. ready for marking on the checklist?
A Bathing Suit
Although you are packing extra clothes in your kid’s backpack for post swimming change, imagine that before jumping into the pool, your kid remembers that he forgot his swimsuit at home. His whole camping time will be ruined. pack a swimsuit or 2 so that he can use the 2nd one if the first one is still wet.
Your kid might have never worn sunglasses outside the home, but this time he is going to stay longer in the sun and his eyes need protection. So tuck a pair of sunglasses intro into his backpack.
Flip Flops or Water Shoes
This thing might not be needed as much as other things,bbuts iI ll it’s wise if you pack them inside. Of course, your kid won’t be wearing these pairs in water, but there are some areas he will be needing them while walking through the rough or slippery surfaces.
even if the camp organizers provide such things already, keeping your kid’s towel in his backpack will make him feel comfortable. Also, it will make your kid safe from catching any infection that he might get by using someone else’s towel.
Since your kid will be staying out of your eyes, you will have to make sure that he is staying active and problem-free. Staying hydrated will be more than important for your kid. since he will be participating in different activities and might lose energy due to summer heat. Never forget to put the reusable water bottle inside your kid’s bag, so he can make himself feel okay whenever he feels dehydrated.
since your kids are going to spend most of the time outdoor, playing in the garden, he is exposed to grass and insects living inside it. Shield your kid with an insect repellent so he never catches an insect’s bite, especially from mosquitos, and enjoys his summer camp time without any irritation.
The bathroom supplies will also be needing a small space inside your kid’s backpack. from shampoo to soap, toothbrush or toothpaste to hairbrush and even a sanitizer, don’t miss anything.
A small bag for dirty clothes should be a must in his backpack. since your kid will be doing lots of swimming and playing inside and outside of the water, he will be making his clothes wet and dirty and need to change them with new ones.
Keeping those clothes with other stuff in the bag will not be a good idea since they will be tossed up with them and making other stiff dirty as well. So a small laundry bag will do its purpose in keeping everything clean and organized until your kids come back home.
