Care Packages Ideas for Sleepaway Camp

I asked the experts at Maine Camp Experience to give me their best ideas for care packages and I’ve posted it here on my parenting blog, Pragmatic Mom.

Please share your best ideas! Thank you!

p.s. Here’s a few of their ideas:

• NO food is permitted; flat mail is the predominant and preferred method; most camps do not allow care package boxes, or permit a very limited number per summer

• If camps do allow them, or even for those sending flat mail, here are some suggestions and tips:

o Make it personal – what makes your child smile; books or magazines they enjoy reading at home; for kids obsessed with sports stats, send them good old fashioned newspaper print-outs of team scores

o Make it shareable – a bunk activity is great; camp is about collaboration, friendship and communication
