Hi! I’m Katie Nicholson Wynn. I’m a former Greystone camper and counselor, and last summer officially graduated to my new affiliation with Greystone - Mom of a Greystone Girl! So exciting!
I love everything about camp, but I do get a little overwhelmed with PACKING! I wanted to share a few tips that might be helpful for any of you who are packing for the first time.
GapKids opened in our local mall just before my first summer as a camper at Greystone. My mom and I spent a few hours there one night and had the best time picking out matching outfits for camp. She brought it all home, washed each item (maybe even twice), labeled EVERYTHING with iron-on labels, and packed my trunk with precision.
I arrived at camp feeling fully prepared and so excited to unpack and set up my bunk. The highlight of that day, and something my mom and I still laugh about, was meeting my penpal and her telling me that she had no idea what was in her trunk because her teenage brother had packed her. I think my jaw visibly dropped! My first letter to my mom said “You’ll never believe this…my penpal’s brother packed her trunk!”
What’s your packing style?
As a mom of a first time camper last year, I was a bit overwhelmed by the thought of packing for Junior Camp, but it was actually pretty seamless once I ripped the bandaid off and started making my way through the list.
A few tips I’d love to share:
Happy packing! I’m so excited for your daughter. There is no place on earth quite like Camp Greystone. Find me on Instagram. I’d love to connect with you there!
