Things to consider before booking a parcel delivery to summer camp

Before you decide to send a care package to campers, there are a few ways to ensure a smooth delivery. Follow these guidelines to ensure your loved one doesn’t miss their campsite delivery:
Packing
Before collection, your campsite shipment must be packed properly to avoid refusal by the courier and ensure your shipment arrives in one piece. For advice on packing specific items, check our packing guidelines.
Prohibited and restricted items
Always be certain your shipment doesn’t contain any items which are considered prohibited or restricted by couriers, to avoid failed delivery or legal issues.
Insurance
All standard shipments booked with Eurosender are covered by basic insurance, included in the price. Additional insurance is available to purchase at low prices.

Important information when booking parcel delivery to a summer camp

Remote locations
Is the destination considered remote? Check this carefully with the courier company in case there may be additional surcharges, longer transit times or limited delivery days.
Access to the campsite
Is the destination accessible by couriers? It is important to check this with the campsite or summer camp organisers to ensure all details are provided, including access codes.
Correct address
Addressing a campsite shipment correctly might seem simple, but incorrect addresses are the most common cause of failed deliveries. See our instructions below.

Which address should I provide to campsite couriers?

When addressing your campsite shipment, you should consider that campsites often have several entries, and the postal address might be different to the camp location. You should make sure you provide all necessary details to the courier beforehand, to avoid any issues with delivery, including:

  1. Country
    Choose the country of pick-up/delivery.
    Ex.: United Kingdom
  2. Name & Surname
    Add the name of the campsite followed by the full name of the consignee.
    Ex.: Green Grove, Joan Adams
  3. Address
    Fill out the address in full.
    Ex.: Chapel Lane, Oakwood
  4. Additional info – Optional
    Keep in mind that the courier doesn’t always take this info into consideration.
  5. Zip code
    Add the zip code
    Ex.: PO18 9AW
  6. Town/city
    Add the full name of the town or city.
    Ex.: Chichester
  7. Phone number
    Add the local phone number of the consignee
    Ex.: +44 4 66 57 41 87

What to send in a summer camp care package

Deciding what items to send in a care package to campers can be a personal thing, so here are some summer camp care package ideas which are popular among campers of all ages:
Games and sports equipment
Perfect for playing with fellow campers around a campfire or outdoors. Check out our packing instructions for shipping different types of sports equipment, such as a tennis racket, basketballs, hiking gear and board games.
Campsite snacks and favourite foods
Some food items may be restricted or forbidden, but you can still send dried, vacuum sealed or non-perishable treats to hungry campers! For guidelines on sending food, see our dedicated page.
Water sports and swimming gear
Did your camper forget their swimming trunks? Or perhaps there was no room in their luggage for their favourite inflatable raft or paddleboard? Send these with Eurosender instead.
Personal items
We all forget to pack something from time to time. Perhaps a tooth brush, a sweater, or a favourite book? Send these to your camper to make their time at camp easier.

Summer camp rules for care packages

Some summer camp organisers have specific guidelines for sending care packages to campers. These will vary depending on the camp, so it is important to check these first. Here are some common restrictions to keep in mind:
Certain foods
Including common allergens, or foods which could attract unwanted wildlife may be banned altogether.
Messy or dangerous toys and activities
Including silly string, confetti or sparklers could be forbidden to send to camp.
Electronics and expensive items
Which could be damaged or stolen, or could keep others awake.
Size restrictions
As camps may have limited room to store care packages, they could place a limit on the size of your parcel.
