Mail time is highly anticipated by those who attend camp, and as parents of campers who have attended camp before know, it takes awhile for mail to be delivered to the hills of Connecticut. To make sure that your child receives a package from you during the early part of their camp stay, you've got to mail a package well in advance of when their camp session is scheduled to begin.
Remember, it can be hard for those at camp who receive nothing for days while others around them are receiving letters and packages from loved ones. Also, don't think you're off the hook after mailing that first item. If you want to avoid any heartache, mail early and often. Letters from home, family photos, and artwork from siblings are often used to decorate the walls of each camper's room.
