Camp care packages
For kids at summer camp, nothing beats a letter from home — except a care package.
With so many camps cracking down on what items and foods kids can bring, it might be worth hiring a professional.
That's right — there are several online companies that will send of a care package of goodies to your son or daughter.
Sealed with a Kiss, www.eswak.com, will create a custom package for your kid based on information you provide about his or her likes and dislikes or if you'd rather you can pick and choose the items yourself.
The company also sells travel packs for kids to take on the family vacation. The packs are designed to amuse the kids in the car or airplane.
The Wrinkled Egg, which boasts a staff of former camp counselors, also packs up fun for campers at www.thewrinkledegg.com.
