Summer is here and I know there are athletes all over the country anticipating one thing… SUMMER CAMP!! Many of the gymnasts at our gym go to week long overnight camps in the summer and I know one source of stress for many parents (and kids) is WHAT TO PACK! Luckily one of the very experienced camp Moms from our gym was kind enough to share her master packing list with me to use as inspiration for the official SportsGirlsPlay.com Summer Camp Packing List.
How to use the summer camp packing list:
- Print out the Summer Camp Packing List from the PDF files below – one is gymnastics specific and the other is for any sport
- Slip the printed packing list into a plastic notebook sleeve or laminate it
- Check off items as they are packed with a dry erase marker
- Wipe off once everything is packed and pack in your camper’s luggage so she can use the list to re-pack her stuff on the last day of camp
Feel free to print out as many copies of the list as you like and share the list with your friends. All I ask is that if you post the list online (whether it be on your club or camp website, Facebook, or a forum), you link back to SportsGirlsPlay.com for the actual file download.
Have fun at Summer Camp!

I love this fabulous infographic sent to me by Aries Apparel that highlights nine amazing female athletes who accomplished more as teenagers than most of us will in a lifetime. Featured athletes include gymnasts Mary Lou Retton, Nadia Comaneci, and Gabby Douglas; golfer Michelle Wie; tennis players Maria Sharapova and Martina Hingis; snowboarder Elena Hight; figure skater Kimmie Meissner; and swimmer Missy Franklin. Enjoy!
