Surprise the Kids at Summer Camp

By: Michele Rogers

When kids go to summer camp some feel as if they are being shipped off to get out of mom and dads hair, but that's not the case in many instances. Usually both parents work and it's the most feasible way to care for them.

This year why not do something different for the child that has gone to summer camp, why not send them a care package after they have been at camp for a week. Most kids are very jealous of their friends getting mail and packages. Lets face it everyone enjoys getting mail.

The care package does not have to be one that you put together. With your hectic schedule an already made one is best chosen. With retailers of today of care packages and gift baskets there are many to choose from.

You may want a simple care package, for example: animal cookies, single serve Oreo cookies, Single serve chocolate chips, sweet tarts, skittles, pretzels, starburst, peppermint patty, granola bars and some M & Ms to top it all off. Snack care packages as this are easily order through a retailer and you can designate the ship to address in the order. Most also allow for a message, such as love mom and dad.

So this summer when you send the kids off to camp and they whine about coming home, send them a great care package. It will show them they are missed and most of all loved. Maybe just maybe they will look forward to going to summer camp next year!
