How do you pack for camp?

How do you pack for camp? We use the extra large LL Bean Adventure Duffle with wheels. They are nice and roomy and easy to transport. I wrote about them one year at Christmas, but they are now our go-to camp bags. They are large enough to fit everything except for a pillow. They held all of our clothes and towels for 8 days at camp. We like the duffles because they can be flattened for storage. You may also need a LL Bean tote if your child was staying for 2 or more weeks and needed a 10 day supply of clothes plus extras. You can order one here. Go for a big one!

C&N Footlockers sell everything you need for camp... even towels! Personally I love the lilac trunk, but you can create your own and even make it multi-colored!!

The large trunk is $199.99 but I have heard they are so sturdy that they really do last a lifetime.

Other parents pack in large rubbermaid containers, such as the Durabull Industrial Toolbox. They are sold at Walmart for about $41, which makes them them the most economical option.

Thankfully there are several great options. How do you pack for camp?

WOW! It has been a lot of years since we packed for camp but my parents always sent us with a trunk or foot locker and a duffel bag from the army surplus store. Our duffel bag was for linens and towels mostly. While the trunk was for clothes.

We bought a trunk for The Dog's camp adventures. It arrived without the wheels and not very well handled. I'm sure I'll be ordering from LL Bean soon enough.

I wrote Greystone today and requested information for my little bickie. I put Hopsy down hoping that would help because I didn't know they would recognize you as Henley on the Horn :) We have a few years yet...she needs to be 10 in my book. However, since she's the youngest, and knowing you might be there, I could consider younger. I see they are taking registrations for next summer! Amazing!
