The New Rules of Summer Camp Care Packages

Parents have been sending summer camp care packages, a box filled with anything from toys to books to homemade snacks, for generations. For kids, these packages bring a piece of home to a new adventure and can be a camp highlight all on their own. Sending a care package can also help make parents feel like a part of the camp experience.

When it comes to care package rules, though, some things have changed. Many camps now closely monitor the size and contents of a package, while other camps have gone package-free. If you want to send your child a care package this summer, here are a few tips on how to build and send one that your camper will love.
