Summer Camp Care Package

I loved going to summer camp as a kid so I wanted my children to have their own experiences of summer camp. One of the differences between theirs and mine, I sent my children a surprise care package.

Especially if this is their first time, receiving a care package of their favorite treats and fun games while away at camp, reassures your children they are loved and you are thinking of them.

Here are some ideas:
  • Potato chips
  • Pik Nik Shoe String potatoes
  • Oreo or other cookies
  • their favorite homemade cookies
  • Jolly Ranchers, Sour Patch, FireBall candies
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • trail mix
  • bags of peanuts or can of mixed nuts
  • Goldfish
  • Jiffy Pop popcorn (to pop over a campfire)
  • sunglasses
  • lip balm
  • Rubik’s cube or other games
  • and you can’t forget the Silly String!
Add a note:
  • Sending you a Box of Sunshine!
  • Love you to the Moon and Back!
  • Attach to your note a bag of nuts and write; “I’m nuts about you!”
  • You mean the World to me!
  • Attach a Tootsie Roll to your note and write; “You’re on a roll of having Fun!”

Be sure to send enough snacks your child can share with his or her bunk mates.

I was lucky to go to camp with my friends. The same friends I have today a half a century later.
