When I was a teenager, the highlight of my summer was going to camp each year! Oh what an experience those camp days were. The excitement, the adventure, the friendships. To this day, some of my closest friends are those who shared in that common camp experience. I love looking back and reminiscing about those fun times through the many photographs of those summer days. But as a grown up one thing that sticks out to me in those photos is the mess that was our room. I suppose when you put that many teenage girls in one room, with all those clothes- messes are inevitable. Still, it is truly a wonder that we all managed to come home with everything we left with!!
This year, my son is attending summer camp for the very first time... and while it's only day camp this year... I know my son. If he is able to lose something, it will be lost. Thankfully, I found the perfect solution in the Camp Label Pack from Mabel's Labels. This limited edition pack is designed to label anything and everything that your little one take to camp to keep them from getting left behind. They are ideal for clothes swim gear, backpacks, shoes, toiletries and more... if it goes in the suitcase, there is likely a label for it!
I could not wait to get them started! Designing could not have been easier! In fact, the hardest part was choosing the perfect design! There was truly a unique design to fit every child's style. Rockets? Trains? It was a tough decision, but we ultimately decided to go with a classic camping theme- perfect for Scout camp!! Once the design was chosen, it was time to customize with my son's information. We opted to keep these simple with just his name, but you can add room numbers, phone numbers, etc to suit your needs best. The whole process took just 5-10 minutes, tops! Super simple!
After placing our order, I was pleased to find that our labels came very quickly! I still wouldn't suggest waiting until the last minute to order, of course... but I know I can get a little impatient when waiting for something to come in the mail, so I certainly appreciated that. I was also impressed with the high quality! These labels aren't just cute stickers- these award winning customizable products are laundry, dishwasher and microwave safe and 100% guaranteed. They are certain to withstand all of the fun adventures ahead at camp!
Inside our package we found a variety of stickers that were perfect for all camp needs. There were also postcards for easy letters to home. But perhaps my absolutely favorite part were the included dog tags! These are perfect for attaching to luggage, sleeping bags- even shoes! Even long after camp is over these will come in handy for many, many purposes!! As a former camper myself, I only wish I'd have had these during my own camp days!!
With Mabel's Labels I can truly send my little guy and his stuff off to camp and know that he's going to come back with all that he left with!
