Overnight and Daycamp Essentials
School is out, (finally!) which means before you know it, it’s time for summer camp. Whether the kids are heading to overnight camp for eight weeks, or they’re just going to day camp, you can stock up on all your camp essentials here at Discount Beauty Center. We’ve put together a list of essential items for both the day camper and overnight camper.
For Day Camp
1. Sun Block
We know we’ve said it before, but sunscreen is one of the number one skin care items that you should never go without! Especially during camp season, when the sun is especially strong and your kids are spending most of their time outdoors. We recommend No-Ad Kids Ultra Sun Block Lotion. This SPF 50 formula (approved by the Skin Cancer Foundation) protects against both UVA and UVB rays and is specially designed for kids’ sensitive skin. We like it specifically because it’s very water resistant (compared to many other brands) – it retains effectiveness for up to 80 minutes in water.
2. Bug Spray
The warmer weather brings more than kids outside – it brings flies, mosquitoes, and beetles…yuck! Make sure your kids are protected by using an effective bug spray. We likeBurt’s Bees Herbal Insect Repellent because it’s DEET free, which means it’s non-toxic and safe enough for children. This 100% natural formula is made with specialized oils that bugs and insects can’t stand and will effectively keep them away.
3. Swimmer’s shampoo
With all that time spent in the pool, the chlorine can really take a toll on your child’s hair, causing green discoloring and lots of knots! We suggest Circle of Friends’ Splish Splash Swimmers Shampoo. It effectively removes dirt and dust while also healing harm from the harmful effects of chlorine.
For Overnight Camp
These used to be taboo at summer camp – but let’s face it, times have changed, and your child will probably want his or her own hairdryer at camp. It needs to be compact and non-cumbersome like the X5 Superlite Mini Travel Hairdryer. This dryer is only 10 ounces and it folds in half for extra convenience. But it’s still just as powerful, with both tourmaline and ionic, ceramic technology. If they want to bring a flat iron with them, try the Babyliss Ceramic Tools Mini Flat Iron - it’s only 6″ long!
2. Shampoo and Conditioner to last all summer
We sell the 32 oz of Artec Kiwi Shampoo and Artec Kiwi Conditioner together for a special prices of $19.99! (This is a $60 value if sold separately)
3. Easy to use face wash
With all the time spent running around at camp, it’s unlikely your child will want to take the time to wash their face at night. That’s why we recommend Biore Daily Pore Cleansing Cloths. These easy to use, disposable wipes effectively clean and exfoliate skin without any hassel!
