With only a few days of school left, I know that there are many kids out there who are very excited to be heading off to camp.
BigDaddy and I loved being at camp a few weeks ago! We didn’t go to camp to swim and play games, but we still had a lot of fun. You can read all about the amazing camp that we were at for our Volunteer Builders weekend from my post “fixing up a camp for some very special kids”
Now I’ve been to camp many times. Acutally, it was every summer from the age of 6 until 16 and then I became a camp counsellor. So I know the types of things that campers need…clothes, flashlights, boots, rain gear… I could go on (or you could read Julie Cole’s “Mama of Many’s Guide to Camp“). But packing for this camping trip was much different. This time our list included tool belts, power tools, cameras and camera accessories; definately not what you’d consider “camping gear.”
This year at camp we had 185 people registered to do the build. That was the largest number of participants ever. As much as this was exicting, it was a bit worrisome as well. How many people would be bringing the same yellow drill?
And then the light bulb went off. Of course….
After partcipating in the the BlogHer 2010 contest, I was given the oportunity to review their Camp Pack. Our build weekend would put them to the test. See it had been raining all week, so the camp was wet and muddy and these tools would be everywhere.
And the labels did their job! The drills travelled all over camp working on many projects and were safely returned to us at the end of each day. If the labels do this well under the wet, heavy-duty conditions, they will do great when my girls are off on their first summer camp.
