Packing for sleep away camp - YECH!

My daughter decides to go to sleep away this summer. First time ever. And suddenly, I'm bombarded with list afer list, form after form. I just recieved in the mail a detailed "Summer Camping Packing List -- down to the 18 pairs of underwear required!

I don't have time for this. So what does any normal, busy Mom with 3 kids and is working full time do? Go online, and within 2 hours ALL my camping needs have been ordered.

Let me give you some ideas:

Duffle Bag(s) - Extra large rolling duffle bags by Eddie Bauer.

Sleeping Bags - great bag from Sierra Trading Post which keeps you warm when the nights get cold – down to 20 F.

Canteens - forget the old fashion heavy metal, go with new age Water Bottle from Duluth Pack. . Strap the leakproof unbottle onto or into any daypack or expedition pack to create an integrated hydration system. Durable exterior is abrasion resistant and lightweight. Fully insulated to keep liquid cool for hours.
