This week I packed up and sent off three (lucky!) kids to Catalina Island Camps for two weeks of classic kid fun in the sun. For my son, it was his first summer camp experience and I wanted to pay extra attention to his gear, packing plenty of activities, stationary and clothes he’d love.
Packing three bags was a bit of a scramble, but it was also a fun trip down memory lane. Many of the items I chose for their bags were the same as the items I packed in my own camp trunk many years ago.
But there were a few new ones!
Seeking some cool ideas for what to pack? I’ve collected some of my best ideas and some recommendations, including a couple of inexpensive DIY projects to pack up.
PS: See if you can spot my own camp reading materials from “back in the day” in the slide show after the jump!

Disclosure: I have reviewed a couple of these items/brands (Mouthman, Ebags, Mabel’s) for assorted other sites in the past but have received no samples or compensation in exchange for or consideration of this post. All photos are of the items that actually went to camp with my own kids, hence the “beat up” look of some of these well loved faves.
Sending daughters to camp? You might want to read the debate about scheduling pre-camp waxing appointments.
