are wearing 100 percent cotton
"Esprit" wear or "Polo" shirts and
designer jeans, you've goofed.
After the discussion, you and
your child might even find out
you've chosen the wrong camp.
Most camps provide each
family with a suggested clothing
list. Note the word "suggested"
because many first time campers
tend to err on the too much side.
Granted, you don't want to
send Jason out into the wilds
without adequate clothing and
equipment. But remember, kids
at camp don't adhere to the rules
of civilization. A week's worth of
underwear, for instance, should
last four weeks. If you send six
pair of socks, three might come
home freshly folded. More than
one pair of pajamas is
unnecessary as long as your
child has sweatsuits.
The key to packing is involving
your child. Let him choose his
favorite T-shirts and shorts. Let
her stuff in something special that
will remind her of home — her
cabbage patch, bear or pound
puppy— and also brighten up her
camp bed.
When your camper packs with
you, he'll be able to recognize all
of his possessions, you hope,
when he has to repack them to
return home. Packing together
should also prevent the frantic
and guilt inducing phone call
home: "Mom, you didn't pack me
a raincoat and it has been pouring
here for the last three days!"
Pack light. Your child will
probably be his own porter. Most
camp outfitters suggest duffle
bags as the most versatile
containers for camp clothes, linen
and equipment. For several
dollars you can customize the
duffle with your child's name. This
is highly suggested, since every
other camper will have the same
army surplus olive green duffle.
Camps urge parents to name
tag all their camper's clothing.
This is especially important if
you've just invested $300 in
T-shirts, sweatshirts,
