Many parents, while packing for their child, tend to overpack the luggage out of a sense of needing to care for all their child’s needs. But you need to be smart while packing your child’s luggage. And if you are also packing your own luggage, it might seem as if you would need everything for a 2 week camp. But ultimately, you end up utilising only half of it. So plan smartly and pack only the essentials and avoid packing extra stuff. Overpacking will give you issues with carrying your luggage and you may also lose your things because of not being able to remember everything.
Never carry any jewelry or lots of cash or your cellphone to the camp because these things might get lost or stolen. Parents need to make sure that these things are removed from their child’s bag before he or she leaves. Campers usually tend to make their own custom jewelry, which is fun and it won’t be a problem if it gets lost.
Never force your child to attend a camp to which he or she does not want to go to. If the child is interested in science, let him or her go to a science camp, not a sports camp. If they are interested in music, don’t force them to attend some other camp. Do not push your kids into doing what you would have possibly done.
Do not leave anything for the last minute, especially packing because this a way through which you will surely forget something or the another, and that could create a problem for your child. Also, searching for the summer camp and the registration procedure should not be left for the last minute as the spots get filled easily and your child might not be able to get into his or her favorite summer camp.
