Summer Camp Essentials

With only a few days of school left, it’s time to prepare for summer camp.  We’ve selected a few must have items for campers of all ages.

Keen Newport H2 Sandal
Keen Kids Newport SandalThe Keen Newport H2 Sandal can handle just about anything.  This sandal features an elastic cord lacing system with an adjustable hook and loop strap.  What does this mean to you?  It means that little kids can put them on and take them off by themselves.  Winner.   The Newport H2’s feature a grippy, non marking outsole and quick drying webbing for kids that are in and out of the water.  Another great feature is that all Keen’s are machine washable.  They come in great colors too.

BugsAway Bandana
Bugs Away BandanaKids will love this bandana.  not only does it look cool, but it actually keeps the bugs away.  According to Exofficio, their  invisible and odorless active ingredient is tightly bonded to the fabric fibers, and lasts the expected lifetime of the garment (70 washes). It repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums).  Now your children can swat volleyballs instead of mosquito’s.

 

Soffe Shorts
Kids Soffe ShortsIt’s safe to say that the Soffe Short is our most popular camp item of all time.  The shorts are inexpensive, come in a ton of colors and are light-weight and comfortable.  Boys prefer the darker colors while girls wear them all.  Lately, we’ve seen huge interest in the new styles like the neon mesh shorts, teeny shorts, tye dye shorts and zebra shorts. Write your child’s name on the waistband or they will probably disappear!

 

Good Kids Socks
Adidas Kids SocksWe hear it all the time from parents, “please show me the most inexpensive socks you have for kids.”  We understand.  Who wants to break the bank on kids socks?  The get dirty and wear out so quickly, right?  Some parents tell us that they throw them away after a few wearings.  This year we suggest you try Adidas kids socks.  A 3-pack is less than 10 bucks and the quality of the socks are 10x better.  These socks feature ClimaLite to wick moisture away from your kids feet, keeping them odor and blister free.  They contain a drop of spandex to keep them in place on the foot and prevent twisting.  They’re stain resistant too so they’ll to look good all season.  Most importantly, they will be more comfortable on your kids feet.

Under Armour Sleeveless T’s
Under Armour Kids TeesIt’s going to be a hot summer.  When the kids are away from the pool, they’ll love the Under Armour Sleeveless T.  No sleeves = full range of motion, which is ideal for most sports.  These t’s are light-weight and fit loose, plus they feature the Under Armour logo on the front.  Kids love that logo.  Under Armour makes this t-shirt in lots of colors, and many coordinate with the shorts, sweatshirts and everything else from UA.
