Whether you’re getting ready to send your child off to a Pennsylvania Christian camp, or you’re attending a Christian retreat in Pennsylvania yourself, you’re in the right place. This post will go over everything you need to ensure a fantastic time having fun and learning about Jesus.
Start Packing ASAP
We know you may be buried under snow at the moment, but it’s never too early to start preparing for camp. The sooner you start, the less stressful the situation will be. Before you start rummaging through all of the closets in your house, check with the Pennsylvania Christian retreat center that’s holding the camp. Most camps will provide packing lists to give you a general idea of what’s needed. In addition to recommendations, they will likely tell you which items are not allowed at the Christian conference center.
Camp Packing List
Below are some helpful items to start gathering to ensure you or your child are fully pre-pared for camp:
First and foremost, you need somewhere to store all of your belongings that you’re bringing to camp. Find a reliable backpack that fits comfortably and that will hold everything you need.
To avoid having to bring your entire backpack to the shower with you every morning or set, we recommend a separate toiletry bag. These bags are commonly waterproof in case something spills. This helps ensure the rest of your clothes and items in the backpack don’t get ruined should something spill.
Activities vary from camp to camp, but no matter your activity level, you need comfortable shoes. Camps and retreats are always jam-packed with activities, often in different locations. You need to ensure you can get there comfortably and not worry about pain or blisters when standing for long periods.
• Shower flip-flops
• Sweatshirt • Swimsuit • Pajamas
• Reusable water bottle • Laundry bag
• Spending money
Include Some Home Comforts
If you’re sending your child to a Christian camp, they will likely start missing the comforts of home. Be sure to include some ca, Iliad items to cut down on homesickness. Here’s what we recommend.
A Comfort Item for Sleep
Include a special blanket or your child’s favorite stuffed animal. There’s something about sleeping in a strange place that can be uncomfortable. These items will help ensure your child feels comforted and can catch up on their zzz’s after a busy day of fun activities.
Stationary or Post Cards
It’s important that your camper can write some letters home to fill you in on all of the things they’re learning at camp. If you are attending a retreat yourself, stationery and postcards are a great way to ensure you always have materials for writing down things you are learning and want to take back home with you.
