Beauty at Camp

Updated: Jan 17, 2021


These two things on paper look like they should not go together.


These are 10 tips and tricks that I learnt after many summers working at overnight summer camp. Some of these might make you more comfortable, some might make you laugh.


However, I want to share my tricks of the trade with all of you. Enjoy!

 

1#

Paint your nails so you don’t see the dirt underneath them.


2#

Lint roller is a must have item. Lint roll the bed to get the sand and dirt out and off your bed. You will sleep more comfortably for sure.


3#

Dry shampoo will become your best friend!


4#

If you can French braid your hair, you might want to keep it your best kept secret or be pimped out by your whole cabin to do everyone’s hair.


5#

Buy BB/CC cream as foundation for your days off/travels after camp. This is a sure fire way for your foundation to match your beautifully sunkissed skin after a summer in the sun.


6#

Hats are the hottest accessory you own. They keep you sun safe, they hide your unwashed hair (and for me, they help control the frizz!)


7#

The best light you’ll ever get to shave your legs is on the cabin porch - fact!


8#

Only wear scented body spray or perfume if you want to attract all the insects. Give it a miss whilst at camp.


9#

Keep baby wipes by the side of your bed. Camp is a dirty place, wipe your feet down before getting into bed - you will thank me later.


10#

Keep scented dryer sheets in your suitcase for your non-camp clothes. It will help keep everything smelling a little fresh after two months.
