What your child needs to bring to camp will vary on the camp type, length of stay and your child's age. The needs for overnight camp are also more extensive than those for day camp, but here's a helpful general guide to get you started.
The camp you and your child choose should be able to also provide you with a packing list of suggested items, so be sure to ask them. Detailed printable packing lists are available here:
Remember to label your camper's belongings. If you don't, you might be amazed at what your child brings home (or leaves behind).
Comfortable clothing, including swimwear and sleepwear
Hat with a brim
Sturdy footwear (running shoes, sandals, at least one pair that's waterproof)
Bedding and towels
Sunscreen and insect repellent
Optional items such as: musical instruments, camera, writing supplies (pen, paper, stamped envelopes), books, games, small backpack (maybe even a small surprise treat!)
What to leave at home
Electronic games and personal listening devices
Expensive items that will devastate your child if they are broken or lost
Too much money; a modest amount is all that's needed to buy the occasional treat or souvenir at the tuck shop
