Welcome back new camper families! It’s been a busy week up here at Greystone, as we have just opened all of our Summer Forms – it makes all of us feel like the summer is coming! Our Parent Handbooks have mailed (and you can find an online version of it too); it is a great resource to help answer all of those questions you may have before the summer.
As we’ve just rolled out all of summer information in the past week, let’s talk about packing today! Packing is one of the most exciting parts when preparing for camp and one of those topics we receive the most questions about. Parents want to know: What do I really need? What do most girls bring? What’s the best way to pack everything to even get our stuff to camp? What do we do with all of the stuff once we arrive at camp? Today, we’re providing a one-stop resource to find answers to all of your packing questions – let’s go!
We have a wealth of knowledge on our website about packing already. First, you’ll want to check out our Packing List for Junior Camp and our Packing List for June, Main, and August Camps. You can print these off and use them as a guide for getting ready. There is also a copy of these in the Parent Handbook.
New this year! We have just rolled out a new page on our website that was made specifically for YOU, our new camper families. This Packing Norms page shows you pictures for reference and also links to items that we commonly see girls bring to camp. You will already have so many of these things, but if you are needing to buy anything extra, we give you some links to common items to help show you what many families bring. Take a look, as this is a helpful resource!
We also have a slew of other resources already on our website, but don’t let all of these many links overwhelm you! These additional links are for the diehard fans and those moms that want to know all of the facts. If you want to only stick to the basics, check out the information above – the packing lists and the Packing Norms page – it’s really everything you need. But for the diehard fans, here are some more resources:
There you have it! All of the information you need (and more information than you’ll ever need!) to be packed and ready for the summer. Have any additional questions about packing? Let us know below! We will see you back here next week as we continue our New Camper Blog series!
