The Right Stuff To Bring To School Camp

The Right Stuff To Bring To School Camp

Our friends at the Australian Camps Association have provided us with a checklist of ‘the right stuff’ to pack for when a child is heading along to school camp. Included in the checklist is clothes to suit the weather conditions and all the fantastic activities little adventure seekers will be participating in. You will want to make sure that the gear packed will keep your child clean and comfortable so they can enjoy each and every moment.

Checklists are an excellent shorthand method for reminding yourself about important matters. In this case what could be more important than sending you kids along to camp. You should consdier adapting this list depending on such factors as the age of your child, the season, the location, the duration of the camp and any requirements of the school or camp.

Just a quick tip - remember to clearly mark all items with your child's name too.
