Health Concerns and Safety. If your teen has any health concerns such as allergies asthma etc. be sure that the youth camp staff is aware of these. Again most summer youth camp registration forms will have a section for you to provide this information. Also be sure that any medications your youth needs are sent to the camp along with them. You may be able to pack them in their bag but some camps will not allow a teen to keep their medications in and around the bunk. If possible place the medications in the original containers then pack them all together in a clear plastic bag that is properly labeled. This would not apply to emergency inhalers but it is something to clear up with the camp staff before your teen leaves for summer youth camp.
First you need to do some research in order to make a good decision about what camp fits your goals and developmental needs. Determine how much time and money you have available to devote to the camp environment. What are your immediate officiating goals? There are basically two kinds of camps: teaching camps and exposure camps. Both are valuable and have their place but you need to understand the difference so your experience is both rewarding and beneficial.
Packing. A large duffel bag may be the best way to pack everything inside for the camp. Many of them now come with wheels and are easier to transport and to store once they are empty. The age of your teen needs to be taken into consideration. If your teen is going to summer youth camp on a bus or public transportation it will be important to have something they can handle. Wheels will help. Personal items should be packed in a separate bag within the larger bag. Toiletries should be in a handy bag that can be taken to the bathing facilities.
Tents: It is very important to know what kind of camping tent that will be best suited for the kind conditions you will most likely find yourself in. Camping tents have are ever more complicated in designs and it is important that you get one made for the environment you will be using it in. The tent is the most invaluable piece of equipment that you will take on any camping vacation it is important that you choose your tent very carefully from the wide selection of tents. Camping tents can be classified by their size that is the number of people they can accommodate. From the one man tent and larger family tents such as our 4 up to an 8 man tent ranges to cutting edge extreme weather geodesic tents and sleeping bags to suit all conditions. One to two person tents are designed to comfortably fit one to two people they are lightweight and generally easy to assemble.
