The Ultimate Summer Camp Packing List 2017

I was an avid camper.  I spent each summer as a child relishing my time at camp with my camp buddies.  I attended both mountains and beach camps, Camp Greystone and Camp Seafarer.  

My children have followed in my footsteps. They too LOVE camp.  

My 16 year old is still going.


  In putting together all the gear and following our camp packing lists last year I thought I should share additional items that we think are essential.

This is the updated 2017 version. 

Lap Desk

Camping Hammock with straps

Camp Stationary

Camp Journal

Friendship Bracelet kit or string

Headlamp (for reading in your bunk)

Paddle Ball

Rashguard (easy sun protection)

Sling Backpack

Hydration Pack

Music Speaker / Radio (if permitted)

Water Misting Fan


Facial Cleansing Towelettes


Bulletin Board (with family pictures)


Happy camping!
