Summer Camp Staff? Answered

This Summer I will be a handicraft counselor at my local BSA summer camp. I am excited for the experience, but absolutely clueless as  to what to pack. Would it be the same as packing to attend summer camp?  I am a backpacker, and that is how I know how to pack, I've never staffed at a camp before! Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm the art director for an overnight summer camp. Our camp gives packing lists to staff and to kids. I would suggest you ask the camp for the list they give the children and you can base a lot off it. If they do not have that, I would suggest they add it. :)

Each camp is a little different, but generally your will be provided with living quarters and food. You may need to supply your bedding; bedroll, pillow, etc.  You will bring your own toiletries, clothes, shoes and personal gear; iPod, laptop and so forth.
Check directly with the camp administration, they usually will supply you with a list of, "Do's and Don't's", things to bring and not bring, what  to expect and the information you will need to make your stay a success.
