I’m heading away in just 1 week and because I’m so incredibly organised I started packing weeks ago (just can’t help myself) and I thought I would take you through what I’ve packed with me to take away on my trip. As I am working with children on a summer camp all summer I made sure to pack plenty of things that I’ll need to keep me going throughout working but also a few items that I’ll need for when I’m travelling after and when I have days off. I
I made sure to take at least a 8 days worth of clothing but I will be wearing a staff t-shirt (I have 8) every single day so I don’t really need many t-shirts but I did take 8 just for when I travel. I also have my clothes washed weekly so I’ve taken 8 to make sure I have 1 day’s worth of clothing whilst the others are being washed. Each member of staff were given a recommended packing list which I have actually taken into account so I’ll just jump straight into it.
- 8 pairs of shorts.
- 8 t-shirts.
- 1 pair of sports leggings.
- 1 pair of jeans.
- 14 pairs of underwear.
- 20 pairs of socks (highly recommended because they go missing).
- 1 Zipped hoodie.
- 2 pairs of trainers.
- 1 pair of walking boots.
- 1 pair of sandals.
- 1 towel.
- 1 raincoat.
- 2 swimming suits.
- 2 bikinis (for after camp as we aren’t allowed to wear them in camp).
- 3 dress outfits for the evenings: 2 dress, 1 skirt, 1 playsuit.
There is a optional list of personal items that include things like a flashlight, sleeping bag and linens but these are things I’ll purchase when I arrive and dispose of before heading back to the UK.
- Sunglasses (packed in carry on).
- Baseball cap.
- Waterproof watch (with alarm as we aren’t allowed phones in cabins).
- Toiletries + makeup.
I haven’t bothered to pack a hairdryer or straightener because I don’t think I’m going to have time to straighten and dry my hair all the time. I have packed elastics and hair bobbles though because my hair will mostly be up all the time or in braids. I haven’t packed as much as I probably could have because I thought I would just go to the Walmart or Target and get anything I may need like a fan and other things.
