Make sure you are completely aware of the camp's visiting day or parents' weekend policies, including the following:
Favorite foods of your child are often popular for visiting day, but some foods may be restricted (e.g. food allergies, animals) so be sure to check with the camp first.
Tip: Most food is removed within 24-48 hours, so do not bring enough for days on end. Leftover food is usually donated to food shelters in the area.
Gift items should be thoughtful and made for sharing. Do not overdo this and remember that camp itself is a gift. These should be more of a token nature, fun and things an entire bunk can play with.
Tip: Most camps do not allow bunk gifts (e.g. an item for each child) to minimize competition; again please check with your camp about its policy. A great resource for camp gifts is gottagreatgift.com.
What about Fido? Pets may not be welcome. Prepare your kids if this is the case.
