There may also be special guidelines such as a one-piece swimsuit for girls no speedos for the boys etc. I remember one youth pastor telling the youth to place their swimsuit on the stove-top burner and if it doesn‘t cover it completely just turn on the burner and go buy something more modest. If the summer youth camp offers crafting opportunities you may want to send along some clothes that are not new. Painting and crafts can be messy and are not the easiest thing to remove from clothes. Also don‘t forget rain gear. Summer youth camps don‘t curtail every activity just because it may be raining.
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.
Little Extras. Pack some self-addressed postcards that will help your teen remember to drop a note home. This will prevent them from using their spending money on postage and allow them to keep in touch with you during their absence. You might also add some personal notes of encouragement in their belongings. Even though it was many years ago that I attended a summer youth camp as a camper I still remember the little notes of encouragement my mom packed in my belongings. They were tucked away in shirt pockets pants pockets and many other unexpected places that didn‘t embarrass me as a youth but reminded me that my family loved me and missed me. Some other things to consider packing with the permission of the camp staff are cameras CD/MP3 players and games. Books are a great addition for evenings when the campfire is over as well.
Finally the camp environment is a great chance to associate with like-minded football officials. You will find that your mild obsession with football officiating may not be fully understood with your friends and family. Most won‘t truly appreciate your desire to officiate football at the highest levels. People will continually question your desires and dreams. Some may even attempt to discourage you from pursuing those dreams. Camps provide you a unique opportunity to surround yourself with similar motivated people passionate about officiating football. This environment is conducive to learning and improvement. The people you will meet and associations you make will reach beyond the short camp schedule and provide you meaningful relationships in and out of the officiating community.
