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.

Bonus tips:

– 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.
