Summer is just around the corner! Do you know what that means? For many parents, that means getting organized for trips and summer camps!
It doesn’t matter how old your child is, when they are at summer camp, there is a HIGH probability of items getting misplaced and lost. Children are often in a variety of places including swimming pools, lunch rooms, outdoors and more which increases the chances that items will stay behind.
One way to help lost items find their way back to your child quickly is by labelling EVERYTHING! I label everything that my children wear from head to toe (hats, swim suits, t-shirts, shorts, sweaters, coats and footwear) and everything that they bring including sunscreen, bug spray, towels, wet bags, backpacks, lunches, snacks and water bottles.
What I LOVE about Oliver’s Labels is that when you label everything on your Day Camp Packing List, not only are you helping others deliver lost items back to your children, but if they lose something and no one recognizes the name on the label, they can use the “Found It” FREE online Lost-and-Found system to deliver the item back to its owner.

No, my kids will be staying home with me this summer as I’m on mat leave.
That is exciting! How old is your little one?
She just turned 6 months on Sunday.
Oh, what a FUN age!!!
My son will be going to an aquamarine day camp this summer. My son is 6 years old.
That sounds like an exciting and educational camp for your son! How long is the camp for?
The camp is only a week long, but we think he’ll have a blast.
Most camps run on a weekly sign up around here too. I’m sure he will have a blast, it sounds very exciting!
My daughter is just 20 months, so too young for camp this summer. I think camp’s are such a great way for children to learn new skills and socialize, so it is something we will look into when she is older.
You are absolutely right! Summer camp is a great way to have fun, learn new skills and make new friends. At 20 months old, there are still many items that can be labelled for summer outings 🙂 What are you looking forward to this summer, Monique?
I am just so happy to be able to spend a lot of time outdoors. It was a rough, cold and icy winter, so we were stuck inside a lot. Great to be able to go for walks, to the park, or wherever and not have to get all bundled up.
My son is 6 and he’s going to soccer day camp for 3 weeks!!!!!
Fun! Has he played soccer before?
Since we are going on holiday, my boy will not be going to camp this summer. If he were at home, it would be a Ukrainian Dance camp as he is a dancer.
Very exciting! Where are you headed this summer, Dreena?
Japan! Exotic, eh?!
Oh wow! That will be nice.
my little one is almost 2 and she may be attending daycare/summer camp part time.
Both of my girls will be going to day camp for most of the summer at various camps and a week in July/August at Camp Grandma! 🙂

Summer camp is a great way to have fun she is 8 and will spend 1 week at camp
My 8 yr old girls will probably go to a couple of day camps.
Fun, Heidi! What kind of camp do you think you will send them to?
My kids are going to camps run by the Salvation Army. They are 13, 11, 8 and 4.

No summer camp this year too little
no camp for them, mommy loves to hang out with them too much! 🙂
no camp, but they are going to be signed up for daily outings.
My son who will be turning 3 this coming month will be starting pre-school in August and we are really proud of him because although he is diagnosed with autism we see a lot of potential ready to bloom in him!
My daughter’s stepgranddaughter will probably be going to Church camp this summer and I am trying to win for her. My children, when young, went to camp each summer for a week and enjoyed it.
Yes my daughter is 8 and she is going to French camp for a few weeks this summer.
My son isnt going to camp this year, but he is starting school, he turned 4 in may
My nieces are both going to a horseback riding day camp this year. They are 4 & 6. I believe half of the day is spent riding and/or learning to care for the horses and the rest is filled with more typical day camp activities.
