5 Things Every Summer Camper NeedsSchool is out and that means it’s time for summer camp and summer fun. Whether your kids are attending Summer camp or not, this is a list of 5 things every child needs with them at all times. There are lot of other great things I recommend having with you but these are a few simple basics to get into the habit of having at all times. 

  1. Bag / Backpack – You need something to carry all of your summer gear in. Make sure it’s lightweight and has breathable mesh if you live in hotter climates. That will prevent back sweat between the backpack and your child. This backpack I have pictured has a waterproof lining in the front (like a lunchbox) to help keep things dry and cool. 
  2. Labels – With lots of kids running around, make sure you have labels on all of your kids gear. Backpack, shoes, water bottle and even sunscreen. This will help camp counselors find your child’s belongs fast and not cross them with other children. This is especially important for parents with kids who have food allergies. 
  3. Refillable Water Bottle – Staying hydrated is a number one priority during the summer. We live in the south and it gets hot. Replenish your body with good clean water. We use eco-friendly refillable bottles like the Brita refillable filtration bottles, because we can refill them anywhere and the filter will take out the bad stuff. You can find them in the hardware section of your local Walmart stores. I have one for each of my children and they take them with them everywhere they go. Brita Water Bottles
  4. Sunscreen – Summer is no fun if you have a sunburn. Not only is too much sun painful, it can be bad for you. Block the bad rays with some sunscreen and make sure your children are reapplying it throughout the day. 
  5. Snack – We like to keep a snack handy. Being outside and moving around a lot burns calories and fuel your body needs. I like to pack a salty snack to replenish what our bodies is sweating out. Nuts are a great energy boosting snack.

Those are my tips for summer camp must haves. We have plans for Y camps, Swim camp, Girl Scout camps, and LEGO building camps. My daughter is looking forward to her arts and crafts camp, I’m happy someone else gets to clean up the mess of paper, glue and scissor clippings! Summer Camp Must Haves

I’ve owned a few Brita filtration bottles since they came out. They have hard and soft ones for your preference. They are BPA free and filters out Chlorine commonly found in tap water. Bottles like these keep hundreds of plastic bottles out of landfills each day. It’s important that we teach our children the importance of reusable products, they are the ones that have to live with the mess when we are gone. Brita bottles are a great way to do that. I’ve also noticed that my girls drink more water throughout the day now that they have their very own Brita bottles. So it’s also great for their health!
