Summer 365 Visiting Day Gift Guide 2017

6.30.17 by

You’ve booked your hotel, planned the road trip and arranged dinner plans but all of this is just small preparation for the big event – Visiting Day. A couple weeks into the summer, a letter comes in the mail (even if your kid never writes) – the Visiting Day list. Your camper has likely mapped out what candy, snack food, and miscellaneous trendy items they must have down to the exact store and brand. This list can be daunting and extravagant but by no means do you or should you have to buy your kid everything on the list. Remember it will all be taken away in 24 hours anyway! Even though just seeing your face after 3 weeks should be a gift in itself, remember your kids have fun making these lists (and probably pass them around to the whole bunk). So indulge a little bit.

At Summer 365 we understand that you want to be the coolest parent on the campground come Visiting Day, and if you follow our guide we guarantee you won’t disappoint. So we dedicated our talents, camp knowledge, and time to finding you the most delicious, drool-worthy and trendy gifts to give to your kid on the big day. From cookies to custom jewelry, shoes and patches these gifts will make for a happy camper. Plus tons of special discounts and promotions for our Summer 365 fam. We love all these products and can’t wait for you to share them with your kid. Let the Visiting Day shopping commence!

p.s. Take note of any lead times for orders! And be sure to check any Visiting Day guidelines provided by your child’s camp.  Many camps have a food allergy policy or do not allow bunk gifts!

p.p.s. we do not benefit financially from the sale of any of these items, they are just companies and products we heart!

The Goodies 

Why eat a boring chocolate chip cookie when you can have one Baked in Color! Chocolate chip cookies are America’s #1 dessert and Baked in Color cookies are the first rainbow chocolate chip cookies on the market.

JARS by Dani started when founder Dani Beckerman wanted to share her love for baking. She came across a mason jar in a craft store and was driven to develop the next new dessert obsession. Something delicious and beautiful—that looked as good as it tasted. So she experimented with recipes until successfully creating her signature line of JARS.

The buzz on social media made Dani realize she had something special. So she took to the city streets, hand delivering each JAR around Manhattan herself. Once just a fun idea turned into a full-fledged business.

Today, it’s love at first bite as Jars by Dani continues to capture the hearts of fans in NYC and nationwide. Even A-Listers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Kenneth Cole and Teen Vogue have made Jars by Dani a must at their fashion events. We invite you to grab a JAR and surprise your party guests with something different and delicious!

These drool-worthy jars may be artfully crafted but they taste even better. With a variety of flavors to choose from, cookies and cream to the rainbow vanilla cake – there is something for everyone. So this visiting day, #GetJarred, it’s a piece of cake! These Jars travel well and will impress every kid and parent in the bunk.
