Summer Camp Clothing Tips

It may seem like there's a lot to consider when packing for summer camp, but it is easier than you think. While most summer camps will send a packing list, there are still a few key things that you want to remember.

First, pack comfortable clothes and more than just one set. Kids go through a lot more clothes at summer camp than you’d expect!

You will also want to consider the varying temperatures and weather conditions. Summer days can get quite hot and most camp cabins do not have air conditioning, so packing lightweight fabrics such as cotton can help keep her cool. As can loose-fitting light-colored clothing that she can wear in layers.

Even in summer, it can still be chilly, especially in the early mornings, on cloudy and rainy days, and at night. It’s always a good idea to pack a few sets of warm clothes as well as a light rain jacket.

You will also want to pack for a variety of activities, both indoors and out. She will be doing all sorts of fun activities each and every day, so clothing that is loose, layered, and easy to get out of is a must.

Speaking of activities, below are some of the most common summer camp activities, along with a few of our favorite outfit ideas that will keep your girl comfortably cool while she's rocking the summer's hottest styles!

From swimming in the lake to tubing and canoeing, water activities are a mainstay of any summer camp. After all, what better way to cool off on a hot summer day than taking a dip in the pool or the lake? Many summer camps offer all sorts of exciting water-based activities which means your girl will not only need swimsuits, goggles and swim shoes, but also clothes that she can quickly and easily remove and put back on.

Clothing for Indoor Summer Camp Activities

It’s hard to go wrong with a pair of shorts and a short-sleeved tee – especially when playing inside! We love how these frayed denim shorts work so well with a soft cotton tee and matching sandals! Capris with a billowy blouse, or even some loose cotton pants paired with her favorite top will work well for inside camp activities, too!

Nighttime Activities

Nighttime at summer camp is totally different from the day. Which means the clothes she wears will be different, too. From night walks and star gazing to campfire songs, plays and skits, she needs clothes that are cute and casual and will keep away any chill.
