Pack up for 'Summer Camp Island'

It’s summer, and camp season is officially open with an endless amount of choices: space camp, sports camp, art camp... But for the first time ever, you can ship off to Summer Camp Island, a not so ordinary sleepaway camp full of magic, monsters and whimsy. Nothing can truly prepare you for the unexplained phenomena at Summer Camp Island, but first-time camper Oscar has a few packing tips to help us get a head start.

Oscar’s Summer Camp Island packing list:

Oscar the Elephant & Hedgehog

1. Pajamas
They come alive when you get to camp so bring your #1s. 

2. Tons of friendship bracelet string
Way more than you think you’ll need. Glow in the dark, too, so you can make a bracelet for the moon. He’s cool. 

3. A small pencil
One that fits in your back pocket for addressing letters. Oh! And for writing about stuff you see or guys you meet and want to think about later. Like the aliens. And the monsters. You'll probably meet all those guys. 

4. An extra pair of sneakers
The werewolves like to snack on sneakers, so it’s good to have a backup pair. 

5. Softball mitt
Sometimes we play against each other, sometimes the witches. Just depends. 

6. Books on tape read by your dad
For nights and early mornings. 



7. An old t-shirt to wear to the Unicorn Stables
If you want to give 'em a sugar cube or anything. 

8. Cozy sweaters
For the library, the yeti meadow, and when you wanna feel cozy even though it’s summer. 

9A compass 
Hahah just kidding. They don't work here! 

10Your Hedgehog
Er, I mean, your best friend. That’s just what I call mine cause that’s her name, but, yeah, bring yours.
