Packing up for Camp No Limits

Before I start, a BIG thing you to everyone who has made this experience possible for all of us. Without your help, there is NO way that we could fund this experience for our family. I think it's highly important that we attend Camp No Limits for several reasons I've mentioned before and I'm sure you'll hear again after this camp is complete.

I've been packing for camp for several days. Packing with three kids is no easy task. I have a LONG, detailed (VERY detailed) packing list, as well as about 8 bags all set out. This trip we tried to get away with having each kid carry their own backpack and then a carryon. At the last minute, Ryan decided that was a bad idea and that we should try to condense down. We ended up with every one of us carrying a backpack, 3 carry on's and 2 checked bags. This cost us $50, however this was still a better deal than any other airline that had free bags so it worked out.


Here's what worked for us.

While this may seem overboard when you are packing, it worked for us. Maybe it'll help you. Packing for all of us makes me stress out (poor Ryan got to deal with all of that!), having a list helps ease some of that. I will say that there's only one thing that we missed. Luca's headphones weren't working so we ended up buying a $2 pair on the plane, not the end of the world. I've also added a few things on since the original list so I'll come back and update this post when I find that and you'll see the word "UPDATE" at the top :) Hopefully it helps!
