Each year I send a summer camp care package to my daughter while at a sleep-away camp! My girl and her friends open a special care package filled with inspirational cute sayings for candy and small gifts.

This year there is no summer camp. Don’t let this stop you from sending cheer! What a great way to send encouragement to grandchildren and young friends during a time they might be feeling super isolated.

If you love sending a bit of love through the mail check out all of these care package ideas. I especially love the Box of Sun!

I used some of last year’s printable tags. They also paired scriptures and inspirational sayings with small gifts and candy. You can mix and match the printable tags to make the perfect summer camp care package.  Many of the notes work for more than just camp. How about using them as small gifts for a friend that could use encouragement.

  1. What a wonderful idea for a care package for the kiddos! I need to share this with my fellow parents friends!

  2. Thank you so much for these amazing ideas!! I just sent to my friends, all of our kids leave for camp next week!

  3. This was perfect for a little treat we gave our church group girls. We printed the tag and bought a ton of starburst treats. Thanks for making it so easy.

  4. Four care packages are camp-bound next Monday! Thank you for sharing these ideas. I enjoy sending stuff to my niece and nephew at camp — and this year I added two first-time camper friends. Mail call will be a hit! I usually just use ‘unique’ containers (bottles, etc.) and send goodies and a note, but I wanted something with a bit more substance this year. This fit the bill perfectly! I challenged myself to come up with a few more non-food options, too, which was fun! Thanks again…
