Summer Camp Checklist: What to Pack for Sleepaway Camp

Finding what to pack for camp can get hard especially if you have never been before. Though most camps provide a This is filled with what to pack for your summer away.

To start

I would recommend to start with 2 big duffels to pack. Big duffels are really helpful to be able to fit everything you need to bring to camp. I would also say to put your name on the bag. You could customize it or even just a name tag because bags can get confused for different bags while at camp. Some sites to get bags: Camp Stuff 4 Less Everything Summer Camp Amazon
