One of my first adventures overseas was when I worked on a summer camp back in 2008. I was a camp counsellor in up-state New York! Looking back at the amount of luggage I took for the 3 month trip is embarrassing, I didn’t really have a clue what to take and I’m proud to say my packing has definitely improved! There are some things that I’m glad I took so hopefully my camp counsellor packing list will give you an idea on where to start when preparing for summer camp!
8 years ago I decided to take the plunge and start the ball rolling for my first ‘solo’ trip. It didn’t stay solo for long, it was spent with 70 other people like me and then hundreds of kids…yep, I signed up for Camp America when I was 19 years old for the craziest summer of my life. You must have seen all the movies about American Summer Camps?! I laughed, I cried and I ate far too much but I wouldn’t have changed the experience for anything.
