Packing Summer Camp Lunches – How to and What to Pack

Packing Lunches for Summer Camp - How to and What to

If your kids are on a traditional schedule and out of school for the summer, are they going to day camp? Are you packing lunch boxes for them?

Packing meals for summer camp can be a bit different from packing during the school year. It’s hotter, the lunches may not be kept inside a cool classroom, and appetites can change when the heat goes up.

Lunch Box packing tips for a hot summer

So let’s get right to the basics. Wendy Copley of Wendolonia has put together 7 packing tips for camp lunches and snacks:
