Growing up there was always one thing I looked forward to and that was going to Summer Camp! As a kid there was nothing better than a week of adventure, meeting new friends and of course, cute boys! I love looking through my old camp t-shirts that I acquired over the years. Mom and Dad were good about always sending us to camp with some money for buying a camp t-shirt and group picture on the last day.
The times sure have changed! A couple of summers ago I had the privilege of going to Crooked Creek Ranch in Colorado as a Young Life camp counselor. Just a few of hours after arriving I saw kids running around wearing Camp logo’ed sweatshirts and t-shirts and drinking from Camp logo’ed water bottles. Promotional Camp Products were already being purchased by the kids on the first day, I was amazed!
Early the next morning I stopped in at the camp coffee shop to get a little caffeine before starting day. While I was in there, I couldn’t help but check out the cool looking camp logo’ed mugs and tumblers for sale. It was then that I realized this was definitely different from the camp I went to as a kid. Mom and Dad gave me cash for a t-shirt and picture and these kids had probably already spend 80 bucks on merch their first day.
Later on that day I had some time to kill, so I decided to check out the gift shop. To be honest calling it a gift shop is kind of an understatement. The “gift shop” was about the size of an average store in the mall. Aside from a huge crowd of kids in there, it was full of Camp logo’ed apparel – including jackets, long sleeve t-shirts, hoodies, and even shorts. I browsed through the rest of the store and found sweatshirt blankets, journal books, tote bags and so much more! I was in there for a while, but luckily managed to walk out with just two t-shirts, a sweatband, one water bottle and a keepsake picture frame. I rushed back to my cabin to put on my new camp t-shirt – I was one of the cool kids now!
Needless to say that almost all kids either go to summer camp every year, or they have been at least once. Promotional Camp Products are a great way for kids to remember the fun they had at camp or as Young Life promises the kids that atttend their camps “The best week of your life, or your money back”.
