Summer Camp Checklist

Posted on 08 June 2017

With summer fast approaching, it's almost time to send your kids off to camp! Here's a list of things that you won't want them to forget. It's always good to be over-prepared, especially when the kids are off on their own for a few weeks.

There are many overnight and weekly camps in and around Toronto. Check out this page for a plethora of themed, educational, and fun summer camps!

Below we've compiled a list of the most common things campers should bring. We've included the option of dress clothes as most camps have at least one 'nice occasion', be it a dance, a morning service, etc, that asks the kids to dress up a little. As always though, if you're not sure what to pack, consult the camp on things they suggest to bring or leave at home. 

This list is also available as a printable version for your convenience here.
