Tuesday's Tip


Can you believe summer is just around the corner?! I know we can't believe it at Mama Henley's house. Before we know it, we'll be headed back to Camp Greystone! Oh, how we love that place! I love helping give first-time camp mamas some helpful hints. One thing I always try to remember to do on Opening Day is to carry a Sharpie black marker in my pocket or pocketbook. You never know when you'll need to put a name on a book, pillow case, or new pair of socks that you inadvertently forgot to mark. Plus,you may go to the Shoppe and buy your little darling a camp blanket or water bottle, and she'll need her name on those too! So, as you prepare to embark on your little one's camp journey, pack a Sharpie marker in your purse!

It's so nice to see you back with a smile on your face:) Great tips for camp. I could use a little time away at a mom camp ~ aka spa! Care to join me?

Have a great day ~

I live in NC and have heard a lot about Camp Greystone for girls. However, I have 2 boys who will be approaching camp age soon and was wondering if you know of a Greystone-type camp for boys? Or would recommend one?

I wish I had read this tip before I shipped Dots off to Camp Merrie-Woode last Tuesday! She packed herself, and I doubt everything was labeled. She will keep track of the things she cares about, I hope, but I should have sent along a marker just in case she decided to put her name on anything else.

When do your girls leave for camp?
