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.
One thing that many families do not consider is that there are year round camps offered by many education institutions parks rec centers sports organizations and many others. These camps may focus on holiday seasons like Christmas or March break but there are also some organizations that offer weekend activities. Programs like these have a proven ability to get kids active keep them away from the couch the screens and trouble and introduce them to new friends learning and opportunities for growth.
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.
Overnight summer camp is also known as a sleepaway camp when campers spend their nights at the camp; some camps do allow both daytime and overnight campers. Beyond the traditional sports - baseball softball basketball soccer tennis football and more - there are camps for outdoor enthusiasts that can offer horseback riding hiking camping fishing and even rappelling. There are overnight summer camps that are co-ed camps boy‘s camps girl‘s camps or brother-sister camps where boys and girls may have separate venues and activities.
