6 Ways To Prepare For Summer Camp


**I was sent Fairy Tale products in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was exchanged. My opinions are my own**


Summer will be here before we know it. My daughter loves to be outdoors, and she's looking forward to going to summer camp at Sea World. She went last year too.






It's not a sleep away camp, but she'll be there most of the day. We do certain things to prepare, to help make it easier.





1. Pick up some bug spray, because yes, there will be bugs. I really liked how this Fairy Tale Deet-free bug spray felt. It didn't have a strange smell either. I cannot stand the bug sprays with a sharp scent.





2. Label everything! This way you don't lose something. My daughter once set her water bottle down and forgot where. Luckily she had her name on it, and it was returned.


3. If your kid is sleeping at the camp, get the Fairy Tale Bed Bug spray. You never know what could be living in the mattresses. Ew.




4. Make a list so you don't forget anything. My daughter has only done day camps so far, but I still kept track of everything she had to bring. (Money, water bottle, lunch, etc...)


5. Avoid lice by using the Fairy Tale shampoo. My daughter had lice before and it was a terrible experience. This shampoo helps keep them away. I've been using this for years because I've been so paranoid that my daughter will get lice again. So far, so good! It's working. I recommend having your child bring this to camp. Just in case.




6. Leave sweet notes in your child's luggage. Let them know they are loved and missed. But don't do this if they're easily embarrassed. My daughter would still love to see the notes but other kids might be horrified. Even though she just does day camp, I'll still leave a note in her lunch.


We plan on having a wonderful summer. With the Fairy Tale products, I know we will. I love that they are free of harsh chemicals, pesticides, toxins, paraben, and sulfates. They are also dairy, gluten, and nut-free too! You can buy them from their website and in most popular retail stores.




To learn more about Fairy Tale products, you can check them out at the following: their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.




Does your child go to summer camp? What's your favorite Fairy Tale product?

  2. My kids did not go to summer camp. This sounds like a great activity for kids. The bug spray would be first on my list if I was to go. :-0

  5. Bug spray is a must-have for kids when outdoors. I use it for my son whose skin is allergic to insect bite. Such a sweet idea to leave love notes in luggage of kids. :)

  6. My daughter is only 3 so summer camp is not a thing yet, but your recommendation of Fairy Tales products is not the first one I've seen so I may end up having to try it. We had some kids over to play and I got a phone call saying all 3 of them were sent home with lice...I freaked out and went and got lice shampoo for my daughter just in case but the smell was horrific and i hated it. I stopped using it as soon as I felt we were protected. It's nice to know there's an alternative.

  9. Zachary is going to sleepaway camp this year and I need to prepare!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Summer camp without a sleepover sounds perfect! Also I didn't know there was a shampoo to prevent lice from crawling into the habit, very nice invention! Next to that, I can totally agree with the notes, so considerate!

  11. Oh wow the bug spray doesn't smell? I hate the smell of bug spray but there are so many mosquitoes around here

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's surely that time of year again! I'm not familiar with these products but I love that they are kid friendly. I really like the fun packaging also and a bug spray that doesn't smell is a plus. I think, I'll be using for myself because I'm not an insect lover myself :)

  13. Wow, I had no idea there was such a think as lice prevention shampoo. My kids both have VERY long (to their waists), VERY thick (like my oldest breaks ponytail elastics almost daily) hair, and we (I) live in constant fear that they will come home with lice and I'll have a major battle on my hands. This shampoo just went high on my must-buy list.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh wow the lice prevention shampoo sure is a surprise! I'm wondering, can you also use their products for pets? I would use it for my dog when we go on camping trips.

  15. I have never considered supplying kids with bed spray for camp. That makes so much sense. I carry or purchase when I arrive, lysol and handwipes when I know I'm going to stay at a hotel.

  16. My boys go camping with their dad. They also go to day camp,love the natural ingredients!

  17. This is such a meaningful post. I am sure there are parents sending their kids off for the first time looking for a resource like you have provided.

  18. Great article. We bought this when we went to costa rica, its a tropical place naturally has many bugs/insects. During hiking while wearing this repellent I didn't get one bug bite!! I would say this product is excellent.

  47. I totally needed some recos on this, so thank you! With kids, it needs to be a combo of gentle and deep cleaning esp in warmer weather.

    ReplyDelete
  48. These are great tips to help prepare for summer camp. We loved labels on everything... and even then my kids came home with the wrong stuff at times.

    ReplyDelete
