Lulu’s Ultimate Camp Visiting Day Guide 2015


I can’t believe this will be the third summer since I wroteThe Running of the Jews.  As most of you know this is one of my favorite articles to write because the “stuff” just gets better and better each year. I am assuming most of you have had your first phone call so you should be aware of any special requests for visiting day. But if not….

I scoured the country for the hottest camp visiting day bunk gifts, candy packages, accessories, and color war goodies. If you can’t find something here, you are pretty much shit out of luck. Because many of the custom/personalized items have a two week turn around time, I wanted to get this article out early enough so you had enough time to place your orders.

Like I did for the camp essential guide –  Many of the stores/vendors are offering my lulu readers a discount on your purchases! The codes are listed at the end of this article.  Don’t forget them!

After 3-4 weeks of no candy, gum, or whatever else gives them cavities, here are some gifts that are bound to make your kids go coco for Cocoa Puffs.

SUSHI CANDY

    LOVE the list! As a matter of fact, I think I’m guilty of purchase 3/4 of these items already!! But there is one population that is not represented.. the dreaded teenage boy. Im fairly certain that most 14 year old boys would just want a 14 year old girl, or would probably settle for an un-airbrushed football, but I have a short list of some fun items that are possible care package or visiting day gifts for the young men in the “teen house” at camp. I have passed it along to some friends with positive feedback- we are all always stumped so a little help now and then is great! Let me know if you want to add on to your list.
