Getting ready and packed for overnight camp can be a challenge for parents trying to help campers feel at home while away at overnight camp. Personalized camp gifts not only make campers feel special, but help their camp goods from getting lost in the cabin shuffle.
Encourage campers to write home the old-fashioned way. Since most camps ban e-mail and text correspondence, your campers will be thankful to have his or her own personalized stationery sets. Fun note cards encourage campers to put pen to paper this summer. These fun, unique camp designs in flatcards or foldovers will be the envy of kids’ bunkmates. Clipboards are perfect to lean on when writing and keep notes from home together. Parents should pre-address the envelopes and use pre-printed return address labels or custom stampers.
Label everything with easy solutions. Whether parents choose to sew or iron on names, TheStationeryStudio.com makes it easy and takes the headache out of labeling for camp.
