Camp Crazy: Beauty Essentials

I am so excited to announce that today is the beginning of the collaboration with Maggie from  www.maggieroyce.com called "Camp Crazy". Maggie and I were talking a few months back and coincidentally, we go to the same camp! After chatting for quite some time and comparing our memories and experiences, she came up with the great idea of doing a collaboration series about camp! The series will consist of three sections that will be posted over the next ten days. Sleep away camp has been one of the highlights of my summer since I was in elementary school, it is a chance to escape the "real world" for a couple of weeks and enjoy the simple things life has to offer! 

Because camp packing is quite the process, we have divided it into three separate sections and today is "Beauty Essentials". This title is actually quite ironic because there is not much beauty involved with camp. For us, makeup is not allowed (except for our banquet night) and there is a pretty good chance that showers will not happen everyday, so these are pretty basic essentials. 

The list...
  • Shampoo & Conditioner- Before my first year, my mom's friend told me to buy a scent that I really liked because it would always remind me of camp which is SO true! 
  • Body Wash- bring body wash instead of a bar of soap because it will stay clean
  • Shaving Cream and Razor
  • Deodorant
  • Toothbrush & Toothpaste- bring two toothbrushes, I always seem to lose mine or drop them in a pile of dirt
  • Floss- bring the flossers, they are so much better and more convenient than a roll of dental floss 
  • Toothbrush Covers- keeps your toothbrush clean 
  • ChapStick- being out in the sun all day dries out your lips, plus I hate going to be without putting on some ChapStick 
  • Sunscreen- bring spray, it is so much easier to use if you are in a rush 
  • Tide Stain Sticks- literally my holy grail, spill something at the dining hall, tie dye gone wrong? This thing has you covered and your friends :)
  • Face Cream
  • Face Wash
  • Lotion- bring lotion with a cap that goes on and off or one that locks so that it doesn't get all over the place
  • Wash Cloths- bring a couple, you are relying on the sun to dry things out and having a dry one is definitely prefered  
At our camp, the bathrooms or "jons" are not attached to the cabin, so we have to walk to them when you are going to take a shower. I suggest bringing a shower bucket to keep everything in and a robe! 

Make sure to check out Maggie's post here! If you are a counselor or attend a camp let us know, we would love for you to join in on this collaboration!
