What to Include in a Care Package for Jewish Summer Camp

Happy kids reading books outdoor in summer camp

Attending Jewish summer camp is a big deal for kids. It is often their first time away from home, and they may be left feeling a bit lonely and anxious. A great way to send a bit of love from home is with a care package. But what should you include? Here are some ideas:

1. Craft Supplies

If your little one is a budding artist, a box of craft supplies is a great idea. A sketchbook and some watercolor pencils can give your child something to do in their downtime.

2. A Group Activity

Help your child make friends by sending something that they can do as a group. Plain fabric bags and a bow or two of fabric markers will allow the entire cabin to come together to participate in a fun activity.

3. Bracelet Kits

Friendship bracelets are back in a big way. A “How-to” book and a dozen or so bundles of floss will give your child something to do when they have free time. It will also give your child a chance to share their talent with their new friends.

4. Scrapbook Kit

Send your child a scrapbook kit, either homemade or store-bought, so they can keep a detailed book of their camp memories.

5. Card Games

Games are always popular among children, and new card games based on board games are all the rage. Games like Monopoly DEAL and Scrabble Slam! Are a fun way to pass the time with friends.
