Sleepover Camp Essentials {Giveaway} – Me, Myself and Kids

Sleepover Camp Essentials {Giveaway}

A Day in the Life Kids Parenting Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love Travel Tried & Tested Win This

I remember the day he told me. “Mom”, he said, “I want to go to sleepover camp”. (Insert tears here)

A few of my son’s closest friends were already attending sleepover camp so I could understand why he wanted to go. He has never been away from home for longer than one night.

I wanted him to experience all of things I experienced at sleepover camp. Summer camp was the best! I just never realized he would go when he was still so young! So after much discussion, we agreed that he would go for two weeks to a camp with a couple of his best friends.

Fast forward a few months and we have now entered into May. The weather is changing, the snow has melted and the sun is finally making its appearance. But not only is it a new month, it is now time to start preparing to camp. Yes, 2 months early!

For the past 5 years my boys have been going to day camp. Granted there are things to prepare for like sandals and swim suits and the rest of the essentials, but I had NO idea what it takes to prepare for sleepover camp.

So of course, I started to do my homework and compile my own lists of things we need to get for Z. And on the way, I found some of my favorites. Some are still what we had for day camp, but other essentials that we need for sleepover camp.

So for all you parents starting your prep, here are four of my favorite finds. And keep reading because you’ll have a chance to get your hands on some too!

Disclosure: I received perks in the form of product for the purposes of this post. As always, opinions are my own…

Face Off Cloth


I became a fan of the FaceOff Cloth when it first was released. It was the answer to my cleaning regimen. Then the brains behind it came out with the FaceOff Junior. And now my kids are hooked too. FaceOff junior was created with children in mind and eliminates the need for chemical-filled face cleansers, soaps and wipes, which can harm and irritate the skin.

They are perfect for removing face paint, stage and dance makeup or sweat and grime after sports or being outside all day at camp. FaceOff junior does it all. If you order now, you can get 10% off your order with promo code MMK10. Just go to

Cubby Cubes


SInce this is the first time I’m sending my kid away, I want him to be as organized as possible. I mean if I have no idea what I’m doing, how is he supposed to know what to do?

I want this to be as easy and seamless as possible for Z so when I found out about Cubby Cubes, I knew I had to get them. Cubby cubes are perfect for any travel; your own vacations and for camp. Having gone to sleepover camp myself, I know that the back area with all the cubbies can get quite messy. Things will get lost, tossed or thrown around, so why not keep it neat, tidy and organized? Cubby cubes do just that.

With the different size cube options, you pack any way you want. Don’t even bother unpacking; put the entire thing in the cubby and you’re done! Your kids just need to open up the labelled cube and get what they need. They really are so easy and I LOVE them. In fact I’ll be using them any time we go away for an easier and better packing experience.

There are so many sizes and collections to choose from. So go shop online and when you check out, get yourself an additional 10% off with code MMK10!

Mabel’s Labels


The last thing I want no matter what time of year, is lost articles of clothing and accessories. I label EVERYTHING. And it is especially important when your kids are off to camp. All you parents out there know what those lost and founds look like and I want no part of it! I have been using Mabel’s Labels for as long as I can remember. They are a must have in my mind. Durable, waterproof and lots of size options. You can’t go wrong.

They have made the perfect pack for camp labels and we would love for you to have your own too!

Little Miss Henna Toolboxes


Along with all of the big stuff your kids need for camp, there’s alot of little things too. From candy to flashlights to stationary, the little things need a place to go to. I have always been a fan of Little Miss Henna. She personalizes everything and the kids love it. So I found out she had items specifically for camp, including Toolboxes.


It is the perfect item that all kids need and having them come how you want it makes it that much more exciting. Of course my son is getting his labelled with his name and hockey number. Because EVERYTHING is hockey!! You can get your personalized toolboxes for only $65.

They also offer a personalized camp kit which includes a graffiti tool box, a personalized carpet, a trucker hat and towel. Check out Little Miss Henna on Instagram and see her latest and greatest!

So there you have it. My top 4 choices to start the prep work. I know there is so much more to do and find.

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.

  • nicky May 4, 2018

    Such useful products for camp! The labels would really help because kids often lose items at sleep-away camp, so having heir name on there would identify their things perfectly.

    • Debbie Akerman-Davidov May 4, 2018

      Exactly! They are perfect!

    I’ve never been to sleepover camp, and neither have my kids. My husband worked at sleepover camps for several years when he was in his youth. I’d love to start sending my older daughter, I think she’d love it. And I love these packing ideas for when she goes!
